Main lodge and teepee at River Ranche.
The River Ranche Lodge is located within the famed Canadian Badlands on the Siksika Nation Reserve, just a one hour's drive from Calgary. Overlooking the scenic Bow River, the Lodge is nestled within one of the largest intact Cottonwood riverine ecosystems in Western Canada, and features four double occupancy rooms adjoining the main lodge area, where there is ample room for dining and socializing. Guests can end their days of outdoor adventure on the large deck, enjoying a campfire, or relaxing in the hot tub watching spectacular sunsets. River Ranche Lodge specializes in both cultural and fly fishing adventures as well as kayaking and cross-country skiing packages, all which can be customized. Cultural activities can include a Blackfoot teepee camp stay, Blackfoot elder storytelling, and a tour of the Siksika Reserve, where Blackfoot historical sites are abundant. Packages can include homemade meals, which feature authentic Indigenous cuisine. River Ranche Lodge is the perfect setting for fly fishing enthusiasts, birding groups, corporate events, family reunions, scrap-booking activities - or as a getaway for an individual or small group.
