From Calgary, there are two ways to reach our all-inclusive lodge: through Canmore, or Kananaskis Country Provincial Park.

From Canmore: Follow the signs to the Canmore Nordic Centre, and stay on the Spray Lakes Road, which becomes the Smith Dorrien Trail (Hwy 742, south) – a well-maintained gravel road. Follow this for about 37 km south along the edge of Spray Lake, to the Mount Shark Road turnoff. Turn right. This road is plowed in the winter but another option is to go Hwy 40 South, then turn onto the Spray Lakes Road. It will take up to 1.5 hours from Canmore.

From Calgary: Follow Highway #1 (Trans-Canada Highway, west) to Hwy 40 Kananaskis Trail. Turn left (south), and go past the Nakiska Ski Hill, Kananaskis Golf Course, and the Fortress Mountain Ski Hill, all the way to the Smith Dorrien Trail turnoff (Hwy 742). Turn right (west) and soon after turn right again, and then follow the Smith Dorrien Trail for about 30 km (north) to Mount Shark Road. Turn left.

Either route takes you to Mount Engadine Lodge, which is located at the Mount Shark Road turn-off on the Smith Dorrien Trail (#742). It’s a beautiful drive – you’ll pass some spectacular scenery, and plenty of spots to pull over and enjoy views and wildlife! 

Renting a car? Not to worry! All roads to Mount Engadine are numbered highways. Groomed daily, these roads will not affect your rental insurance policy.

 

Stay as long as you can!

“We've been lucky to spend 3 nights at the lodge. Days filled with hiking and exploring. Enjoyed watching moose and their young in the meadow and have some amazing photographs. We also were blessed to see a young grizzly on the day we departed. This past summer, we spent several hours enjoying afternoon tea (Engadine style) on their deck. A large bull moose across the meadow, sunning himself. Go and stay as long as you can, and if you can't stay go for tea. The nature, lodge, location and staff won't disappoint you.”
