THURSDAY AND SUNDAY EXCHANGE DAYS

Talus Lodge is a fully catered and guided backcountry lodge accessible by guided hiking and provided transportation from Canmore, Alberta. Guests are required to hike with their personal gear required for their stay. The hiking is rugged and the rocky terrain can be challenging. Don’t expect a fluffed and buffed trail network or hands in the pocket walking.
