From the moment you arrive to the hot soup and the wood stove to warm your back this is a very special place. The hosts are welcoming and helpful, and Katie is one of my favourite cooks - you have to get the cookbook! If you enjoy experiencing spectacular scenery in one of Canada most majestic and historic areas, this...

An incredible experience from start to finish. The check-in at Lake Louise is professional. The 12km walk-in is staggeringly beautiful and not too difficult. The two steep sections (Boulder Pass and Deception Pass) are relatively short, with the rest of the trail mostly following contour lines. Ptarmigan Lake is a stunner and the woods are really lovely. The vistas just...

We recently attended a week-long indoor event in Banff so thought a 4 night visit to Skoki would provide a good opportunity to enjoy the mountains and backcountry, I found the 11km hike in to be a bit difficult so was thrilled to arrive for tea time at Skoki. Our accommodations were comfortable, the food super delicious and plentiful, the...

We stayed at Skoki for 2 nights in July with a group of friends from our hiking club. The hike in (bypassing a few km of boring road at the start thanks to the Skoki Lodge shuttle) was gorgeous and just strenuous enough to make us feel like we had earned our sumptuous afternoon tea. The most delicious carrot cake...

I've never stayed in a lodge in the back country before, and knew exactly what I was getting myself into. After a beautiful 11km hike to Skoki, we arrived to some welcoming snacks, tea and coffee. The food was spectacular, such a great job done by the kitchen staff. It feels like a real family experience. Everyone was very friendly...

Skoki is everything that everyone says it is. Historic, charming, off-grid (and off-line) with fantastic staff and food. Huge meals, communal, candle-lit dining, cozy common area with a wood-stove in the main lodge - Skoki truly is a gem in the Canadian Rockies. I can't wait to go back and judging by how many repeat visitors were present when we...

I have been to Skoki Lodge many times and I keep coming back. If you enjoy cross country skiing, this is THE place to go in wintertime. I have also visited the lodge in summer for some great hiking. The log lodge was built in the 1930 and has so much character; the old photos on the walls make you...

You have to ski or hike 11km to experience the historic Skoki Lodge, and it is well worth the effort (and cost). Beautiful old log lodge and cabins, no power or inside plumbing, but an amazing location, very compitant staff and excellent food.

Skoki Lodge is a ski in Lodge, right around 11km's. We arrived to an amazing afternoon tea service with hot soup, cheese and fresh scones and a ton of baked goods.
