Talus Lodge is a rare gem in the Canadian Rockies. It is a lodge that is nestled into its environment in a very non obtrusive manner, and from which there are a bounty of areas to explore and sights to see. I love it for the diversity of the micro and macro landscapes, the many ecological zones that you can visit, and the profusion of flora and fauna. There is no lodge that I know of in Western Canada that has so much, in such close proximity to the Lodge. From each window and from every vantage point on the expansive decks of the lodge you have beautiful vistas; from the sun sparkling on the alpine tarns, to the majestic talon peak, the flowers in the meadow and the brooding bulk of Mt Assiniboine in the distance. This is a special place, which I have had the privilege of visiting three times and a place I know that I will continue to visit in the future.
