The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge
save place
A Canadian Wilderness Retreat
Jasper National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, surrounded by unspoilt nature, dramatic mountain views, crystal clear glacier lakes, and enough wildlife to make you feel like you are on a safari. The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge is one of Canada's grand mountain retreats, that Western Canada and the Rockies have become famous for around the world. The site started as a tent camp in 1915, and the log cabin resort was started in the 1920s. This luxury retreat has attracted everyone from Queen Elizabeth to Marilyn Monroe (who stayed in the Point Cabin). The cabins range from quaint to luxury and the resort had no shortage of amenities, including a golf course often ranked as Canada's best, hiking, canoeing, horseback riding and biking in the summer and skating, tabogganing, snowshoeing and skiing in the winter. After outdoor activities you will appreciate the $6.7 million spa facility completed in 2010 with an outdoor hot pool that can be enjoyed year round. You may find Elk, Wolves, Bears and Deer on your doorstep of the cabin on a quiet morning here. For the ultimate Canadian Winter experience we recommend coming during the Christmas season and also enjoying a guided Ice Walk at nearby Maligne Canyon. © David Brodie -
