This extraordinary b&b lodge is the antidote to the crowds and impersonality of Banff: secluded and quiet but close to everything. In the summer it would be a great central location for all the scenic treasures positioned between Banff and Jasper. But I had the pleasure of staying in winter, when the crowds have gone, and the Rockies are arguably... More

Aurum Lodge is the perfect location for rest, relaxation, and hiking, and should be a planned stop between busy Banff, and Jasper National Parks on your drive up the Icefield Parkway. The scenery, and surrounding hiking trail options are boundless, and access to the Columbia Ice Field is quite close. Our four-night package at the Lodge included an excursion to... More

Great facility in the Lodge, excellent home-cooked communal meals for lots of sharing experiences, and very accommodating hosts Madeleine and Alan--and all in an eco-friendly facility on a beautiful setting! We made trips to the Columbia Icefields and Jasper from this location, and enjoyed hiking the local well-marked trails along Abraham Lake.

…I wish it would be! The owners of the Aurum Lodge offer a wonderful lodge with a beautiful view of the lake. The property is huge and the lodge is situated far enough away from the highway that you can enjoy a truthfully quiet stay. What really impressed me, is that they try to introduce tourism with no or nearly... More

We spent 4 nights at this wonderful site. If you are looking for the magical tranquil beauty of the Canadian Rocky mountains, this is an amazing find. After a brief visits in Banff and Lake Louise, Aurum Lodge equals the view, while taking away the flurry of crowds and traffic. Although we thoroughly enjoyed day trips hiking in the forest... More
