Emerald Lake Lodge, Yoho National Park

If only the walls could talk – you’d hear enthralling stories of the wild Yukon from over 100 years ago, from explorers, trappers, gold prospectors and claim jumpers. 

Choose the Emerald Lake Lodge during your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Canada and you won’t just be staying beside a gem of a lake in a British Columbian wilderness setting – you’ll be experiencing part of Canada’s colourful past. Emerald Lake Lodge is cast in the traditional mould of backwoods cabins. Built from hand-hewn timber, the lodge features massive stone fireplaces – many over a century old – traditional verandas and porches and an oak bar in the lounge that was reclaimed from a genuine 1890s Yukon saloon.

That is not to say, of course, that the lodge doesn’t have modern refinements. There’s a fitness room, a dry sauna and a state-of-the-art outdoor hot tub for soaking and admiring the awesome mountain views. Not to mention award-winning cuisine and supremely comfortable accommodation.
