Is this expensive? YES. It is worth it? YES. During the winter you'll be one of only 16 guests. During the summer, you'll be one of 50. The staff-to-guest ratio is often 2 to 1, greater in the winter. They provide everything from personal guides and naturalists to fine cuisine and wine every night. They pack sumptuous picnic lunches for you to take on your hikes.
Staying at this charming and rustic backcountry lodge is the PINNACLE of a Canadian Rockies luxury experience. Forget the Chateau Lake Louise, the Banff Springs, or the Jasper Park Lodge, Lake O'Hara makes fools of them all!
