A historic lake and mountain location
Peacefully sprawled on the shore of jewel-toned Lac Beauvert in the heart of Jasper National Park is Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge. A village unto itself consisting of heritage log cabins, longhouses, and lodge buildings presided over by rugged, snow-capped peaks on the horizon in all directions, The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge offers its guests a world-class hospitality experience while retaining the rustic, pioneering feel of the Canadian wilderness.
Part of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks UNESCO World Heritage site, Jasper was established in 1907 and became a Canadian national park in 1930. You’d be hard-pressed to get closer to nature in a hotel setting: beneath the tall trees outside your cabin, wildlife such as deer and elk roam freely, often lounging on the grass or lingering on the pathways between buildings. If you’re very lucky, you might even spot a baby owl perched in the branches of a tree. Here, the majesty of the Canadian wilderness is highlighted by the cozy, unpretentious, understated luxury of your accommodations.
Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge has practically been synonymous with the park itself since 1922, when the resort officially opened after Canadian National Railways took over the Tent City luxury camp established in 1915 and erected its first eight log cabins. Today, with a total of 446 rooms, the hotel is known worldwide. Its adjacent par-71 golf course has garnered numerous awards and the onsite Fairmont Spa offers treatments and body experiences inspired by nature, Rockies-style.
Inside the main lodge, guests can indulge in one of Jasper’s most relaxing experiences: enjoying a classic cocktail in the Emerald Lounge overlooking Lac Beauvert and Whistlers Mountain. The floor-to-ceiling windows showcase one of the most stunning views in the park.
A symbiotic relationship with the wilderness is evident here: Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge maintains an onsite herb garden and greenhouse, and harvests honey from its own beehives located on top of the main lodge. And why not? One look at your surroundings offers plenty of inspiration for living in harmony with nature.
