As spring approaches, it’s notoriously hard to book cabins in the Rockies as everyone is desperate to get out in the cool mountain air.

However, there are some really cool lodges to get your nature fix and, best of all, they’re also all-inclusive.

With the backdrop of some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, these all-inclusive resorts are designed to show off just what the Rockies have to offer.

Some require day-long hikes or even a helicopter ride to get there, but you’d better believe those views are worth it.

Aurum Lodge

Price: From $273 a night per couple (but there is a three-night minimum stay).

Address: 374021 Hwy 11 at Cline River, Nordegg, AB

Why You Should Go: If you’re looking to lose yourself in nature, Aurum Lodge, set on the stunning Abraham Lake, will be the perfect escape. The eco-tourism lodge is all about “disconnecting” so has no phones in its rooms, no cell service and only limited wi-fi on site. Breakfast is included and you can book in advance if you want to include dinners too for a fully relaxing experience.

Assiniboine Lodge

Price: From $395 per person per night.

All meals and afternoon tea are included which you can enjoy with a stunning view of Mount Assiniboine. The lodge provides tailored guided hikes depending on the weather and level of difficulty so you can choose whichever suits you.
