Accommodations for Banff - Backcountry Lodge Ride - 3 days

Both nights will be spent at Sundance Lodge. There are no sleeping bags or camp stoves here, you will be sipping from wine glasses, dining on food prepared by a skilled chef in a professional kitchen and sleeping in a comfortable bed. Your lodge host will cater to your every need and make you feel welcome, like you are a guest in their home.

The lodge is the perfect balance of comfort and authenticity – giving you the Wild West Explorer feeling without having to rough it. Completed in 1991, Sundance Lodge now sits on the original site of the horse corral for Ten-Mile cabin, built by Canadian Pacific Railway back in the 1920's. The cabin itself remains standing and was declared a historical site in 1990. It was used as a refuge for mountain guides and packers traveling to Mount Assiniboine, whose names you can still see carved into the logs. Sundance Lodge sits alongside a gentle curve on Brewster Creek, with the Sundance mountain range as a backdrop. Built entirely with fir logs, the lodge has 10 sleeping rooms (choose your own basis), a large country kitchen, and a cozy living room area where you can curl up by the wood stove and lose yourself in a good book for the cooler nights or the porch for warmer nights. Private sleeping arrangements are possible depending upon trip size, but are not guaranteed. The lodge can hold up to 34 people.
The cabin does not have WIFI, so you can really unplug and enjoy nature.
