Leaves are changing and the weather is getting cooler so there's no time to waste in planning this glamping getaway to Mount Engadine Lodge. Start packing your coziest sweaters to spend the night in these adorable yurts hidden away in the Canadian Rockies.
This spot is only a 2-hour drive west from Calgary and straight south of Canmore, nestled away in the scenic Kananaskis country. It has a ton of sleeping options beyond the unique yurts. You can also enjoy a room in the lodge, rent a cabin, or stay in their glamping tents.
Really, it's the perfect trip to run away for a weekend with friends or just you and your S/O.
Yurts originate from Central Asia and unlike when you go camping, staying in a yurt is more convenient and comfortable.
These rustic dwellings are available to rent all year long (even in winter) and can sleep up to four people.
One google reviewer described Mount Engadine Lodge as "a hidden gem in the Rockies."
For those wanting to visit in the colder months, don't worry, there's a propane heater to help keep you toasty.
But be warned, you are getting the “campsite experience” in the yurts, which means no washrooms or electricity.
However, if you're looking for something a little more glamorous, instead of a yurt you can rent a glamping tent.
This option is much more luxurious with a king-size bed, your own deck, and a gas fireplace. And yes, it has a bathroom which also includes a shower.
A total bonus to this whole experience is that gourmet meals are included. Who doesn't love getting spoiled?
These yurts are right within the wilderness of the Rockies, giving you privacy and some one-on-one time with nature.
If you're wanting to explore on foot, there are a ton of stunning trails nearby. The Lodge has free snowshoes and fat bikes for you to use.
Glamping would be such a unique, no-frills experience and the perfect getaway for you and your squad.
