An overnight stay at the Tonquin Valley Adventures Lodge is perhaps the best wilderness experience in the Canadian Rockies.
It's a well earned one, too, as the lodge lies 20 km from the nearest road.
The Tonquin Valley is a stunning backcountry hike in Jasper National Park that leaves the Edith Cavell road and travels along the Astoria River before reaching The Rampart Mountains and Amethyst Lake.
The setting is surreal, as the Backcountry Lodge has a series of cabins all with stunning views of the nearby Rampart Mountains. A short walk leads guests to the edge of Amethsyt lake, where canoes, kayaks, and row boats await.
Stays are all-inclusive. Call 1-780-852-1188 for details.
