What to do When Glamping Alberta

Banff and Jasper National Parks

Banff and Jasper are two of the most popular national parks in the world offering an amazing area to explore for road trippers and outdoor enthusiasts. Some of the highlights in this region include the incredibly scenic Lake Louise, and almost equally beautiful Moraine Lake and Lake Maligne.

Another awe-inspiring sight in the area is the Athabasca Glacier, one of the six “toes” of the Columbia Icefield. Other top sites include Banff Hot Springs, Valley of Ten Peaks, and Castle Mountain for that perfect Instagram photo. Plus of course the charming towns of Banff and Jasper themselves.


Calgary is world-renowned for its iconic Calgary Stampede Rodeo which is held every July and attracts thousands from far and wide for a week of festivities and events. Many folks head to this area to also explore the Dinosaur Provincial Park and Royal Tyrell Museum. Of course, Calgary is also close to Banff and Jasper National Park as well as Peter Lougheed Provincial Park.


Edmonton is home to the Edmonton Mall which is the biggest mall in North America. There are also some great outdoor activities to partake in near the city for those on a road trip through the area. Elk Island National Park is a good place to explore for animal lovers. The Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village is a recreation of an immigrant village and there are also dozens of lakes for fans of fishing.

“This is a romantic, cozy and conveniently placed cabin, it was a wonderful and for the most part relaxing weekend get away. Rustic décor and wood fireplace along with the cute kitchenette made for a great romantic getaway. Definitely a trip to remember.”

“Great little winter getaway, the perfect space for a couples night away! We heard from a friend who stayed here previously and we just had to check it out. Stayed two nights and loved every minute. it was snowing so we especially didn’t feel bad staying inside and enjoying the space. The bucket of slippers is such a great touch!

The bed is beyond comfortable and we had the best nights sleep we’ve had in a long time. No need for the space heater if you’re using the wood burning stove, it heats up at cabin fast! There’s a bundle of wood for you when you arrive so no need to bring your own. It was great to walk in to, completely spotless, music on and lights glowing. What a warm welcome! Make sure you bring a few games or a deck of cards with you! We’d love to stay again and already have so many people inquiring about it since seeing our photos we took. Can’t wait to come back!”

“This place is so beautiful! I cannot overstate it. Sitting on the dock and watching muskrats and ducks and listening to coyotes was magic. The deck and fire pit were really nice too and the cabin itself is adorable! Plus the vintage row boat was a really special touch! Rachel and Ashley were really kind and accommodating and responsive. Id recommend bringing only bbq and fire side meals since theres not really a kitchen. We loved it and would recommend 1000%”

“Had an amazing time there with my girlfriend, the wood stove was cozy, enjoyed bbqing and having bonfires out back, relaxing on the dock, playing pool in the barn and visiting all the animals. The horses were very friendly and really loved the carrots we brought for them. Rachel and Ashley were very helpful with any questions and provided extra blankets, dish soap, coffee sweeteners, anything we needed really. I would recommend this place to any couple looking for a quiet little retreat. We definitely hope to come back in the future!”
