When you visit Emerald Lake Lodge, you follow in the footsteps of legendary guide Tom Wilson – who discovered this magical location more than 100 years ago. With its century-old fireplaces and an oak bar salvaged from an 1890’s Yukon saloon, there is no shortage of history within these walls.

Yesterday’s travellers were adventurers in search of the extraordinary.

And that’s exactly what they found when they arrived by rail and horse-drawn coach to the shores of B.C.’s exquisite Emerald Lake – located in the heart of what is known today as Yoho National Park. Legendary guide Tom Wilson first stumbled across this small gem of a lake – famed for its jade-coloured waters – in 1882 during the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Today, the area remains one of North America’s most outstanding and year-round accessible wilderness settings.

Built of hand-hewn timber and featuring massive stone fireplaces, the lodge includes an elegant dining room, quiet reading and sitting rooms, conference facilities and a games room. Our lounge features an oak bar salvaged from an 1890’s-era Yukon saloon. From upper and lower verandas, the vistas of surrounding mountainscapes are breathtaking. Few destinations in Canada offer this unique mix of luxury and “we-are-but-specks-on-this-planet” nature.
