It is even more stunning in person. Chances are that you instantly recognized this iconic Canadian hotel the moment you saw it. Instagram overflowing with jaw-dropping photos of this location. Who doesn't love the view of the bright turquoise waters and the Rockies? You need to see B.C.'s Emerald Lake Lodge at least once in your life.
Just two and a half hours from Calgary, you can find yourself relaxing in one of the most serene areas in Canada. This hotel is the ultimate getaway you'll definitely want to add to your bucket list.
To enter the magical spot, you'll need to cross a bridge right over the jewel-toned water in Yoho National Park. It is also like you are crossing a draw bridge to a castle.
Then when you arrive, it feels like you have the entire island to yourself as you relax within the cozy building or the gorgeous outdoor areas.
The guest rooms are a real treat and will have you feeling pampered. Not only do they have fireplaces, but some even have balconies overlooking the lake.
Just picture waking up, ordering eggs benedict in bed and soaking in the postcard-worthy view outside.
It sounds heavenly and would make a picture-perfect romantic weekend.
The suites are pet-friendly too, so go ahead and bring your dog for the adventure.
On the grounds, there is plenty to keep you entertained. You can relax within the dry sauna, soak in the hot tub, or even have a bite to eat on the patio.
Plus, no visit would be complete without renting a canoe and seeing how far you can paddle. Who knows what you might discover?
Just a few steps from the hotel, you can also try the Emerald Lake Loop hike. It will take you roughly two and a half hours and reward you with more photo-worthy views than you thought possible.
Or you could always visit the Natural Bridge rock formation, which is just a short distance away. To have time to see and do everything available, you'll need to go for at least a weekend.
