Mount Engadine Lodge is located along the Smith Dorrian Road/Spray Lakes Road about one hour away from Canmore. Set in the wilderness there isn’t much else around besides mountains, valleys, trees, and some moose.

There is no cell service, and no televisions. It’s back to wilderness here – exactly like what you may after with a trip to the Canadian Rockies.
