We stayed in the lower facility of the resort and it was awesome. Comfortable room, and near restaurants and shops in the center of the village. The restaurants and gift shop in the main lodge were very nice and food was great.

Totally worth it. It's unprecedented access to areas you cannot reach yourself unless on foot or bike. The opportunity to see Dall Sheep, Bear, Wolf, Caribou and Moose to name a few with professional driver / guides and long range video camera. It's an old school bus as they can take the rough tracks but also have opening windows for photos. Plenty of stops to get out stretch your legs and embrace nature. If you're looking for shops forget this tour!! It's a long day but goes really quickly and packed lunches was provided. A must tour one not to be missed.

"Please let them know if you have walking concerns so you can have a first floor room or lodge with limited walking access."
"If you can do steps, select 2nd floor--will definitely be more quiet"
"Be prepared to do quite a bit of walking and hill climbing to get around the property unless you want to wait for the bus."
"Be sure to ask about the different buildings......we liked ours which was marked "P" I believe it was."
"Ask for Canyon Lodge if at all possible"
