Hiking Summer Outdoor Activities

Alberta has thousands of kilometres of hiking trails, whatever your flavour. From easy to pro, there’s a hike to get you to your happy place: mountains, grasslands, badlands and forests. Where should we start? • Heli-hiking: Get to the top in seconds and start the hike on a high. With just a short helicopter flight, you'll see hidden alpine lakes and meadows. From there, the guided hike can be as chill or adventurous as you’d like. • Winter hiking: Snowy trails transform Alberta’s best hikes into sparkling new terrain in the winter. Pack a thermos of hot chocolate and let the frosty air urge you up to the next frozen waterfall.

The Shadow Lake Lodge experience is a chance to disconnect and unwind, to venture out on the trail without getting in a vehicle, to be fed and nurtured without lifting a finger, and to relax without the distraction of electronics.
