In September we enjoyed 5 nights at the lodge, painting the amazing landscape of the Selkirk & Purcell Mountains. At the end of each creative day we enjoyed lounging by the fire, chatting about the challenges & rewards of painting "en plein air". Our hunger was satisfied by the ultimate of gourmet creations by Stephan, our extraordinary "singing" chef. After... More

We recently spent a week at Purcell Lodge -- our fourth winter visit! The skiing is wonderful, the guiding fantastic. The lodge itself is beautiful and wonderfully comfortable and spacious. There are plenty of showers, flush toilets, and sitting areas -- with lovely decor. The chef, Stefane, is not only a wonderful chef but also a wonderful host for the... More

My husband and I had a very special anniversary at Purcell Mountain Lodge Sept 4-8, 2012. After a gorgeous 15 min heli flight from Golden, we enjoyed 4 days of wonderful scenery, beautiful hiking trails, a really comfortable, lovely lodge, and the truly enjoyable companionship of our guide, Kevin, and our chef, Stephane. The Selkirk mountains seem so close you... More

I have wanted to go to Purcell for some time and this August had the chance to spend 3 days at the Lodge. I am a vegan and the chef seamlessly accomodated my dietary wishes along with his gourmet rustic meals. I honestly haven't ever eaten so well at a Lodge! The selection of wine and other drinks was well... More

Flown in by a 15 minute helicopter ride, my husband and I were the only guests for four days at Purcell Mountain Lodge and we felt like royalty. The setting is remote and beautiful, in the middle of sub-alpine meadows, with the Selkirk Mountains looming on one side and the Purcells on the other. The guide and chef were personable... More

Stayed for 4 nights mid July. What beautiful views, wake up in your cozy bed and look out at the pristine mountians. Hiking was comfortable, not too cold, just right. Hot showers and great food are waiting when you arrive back at the lodge after hiking with your guide. This place is totally off the grid, I'd recommend it if... More

The excellent hiking weather and incredible natural surroundings no doubt contributed but the Purcell Mountain Lodge and its able staff provided the comforts and conveniences to make our backcountry hiking holiday about the best ever. No scrimping here: great food, clean cozy beds, bathrooms and hot showers and, professional, enthusiastic guides focused on safety and education all in a relaxed... More

Beautiful lodge, fantastic weather, wonderful food, and complete solitude. Lots of hiking trails. We were the only ones booked for our 3-day stay. With a chef and a hiking guide, we were well taken care of. I felt completely relaxed and renewed by the end of our stay.

Stayed here two days towards the end of August. Mountain weather is unpredictable but we didnt expect an inch of new snow on our second day. Lodge accomodates 26 but only four were there during our stay and the other couple took the honeymoon chalet which left us the only guests staying in the lodge. We arrived on the helicopter... More

Purcell Mountain Lodge is a luxury wilderness hiking lodge in the Purcell Mountains, a short helicopter flight from Golden, B.C., Canada. It is more luxurious than Selkirk Mountain Experience, which I have also reviewed on Trip Advisor, but at about double the cost. Purcell is a larger lodge, and the rooms are bigger and have a sink. Showers and toilets... More
