Alberta Lodges and Resorts
Are you searching for phenomenal fishing, beautiful scenery and a relaxation experience that is like no other? Then take a look at wondrous Alberta – home of big fish, big lakes and even bigger memories! Alberta plays host to some of the world’s best freshwater fishing, from the monster northern pike to the diminutive perch, and every specie in between. For those who are looking for a mix of fishing and fun, what better way to see the wilds of Alberta than in the comfort of one of the hundreds of lodges, cottages and resorts sprinkled throughout the province.
Lodges provide all of the comforts of home, including such things as meals, boats and activities, and can be packaged together in many different ways. Whether you prefer to “rough it” or “dine in style,” there is a lodge or resort tailored to your needs, and your budget. Many of the resorts also offer guides, helpful for those new to the area, or the fish specie on hand. Guides in Alberta are extremely helpful and knowledgeable, and will have you on that “honey hole spot” in no time at all. (They also prepare the most tantalizing shore lunch – a real treat at the end of a long day of fishing!)
Alberta’s lodges and cottages offer a wide range of species to target, including such notables as the walleye, lake trout, rainbow or bull. For those with a passion for fly fishing, how about a vacation in “trout heaven,” – the famed Bow River. Here you can cast dry flies to your heart content, and relax in the comforts of your home-away-from-home after a “hard” day of landing fish.
Lodges can be both a setting for a solo trip, or a wonderful retreat for the entire family. Besides the fishing, most lodges offer excellent beaches, water activities, hiking and boating, sure to keep the youngsters happy and the adults occupied. What can be better than sitting by a log fire at the end of the day, roasting marshmallows and listening for the haunting call of the loon in the darkness and solitude?
Fly-in fishing is another opportunity for the vacation-seeker to truly get away from it all. For those who take their angling serious, this may be your best bet to sample pure ruggedness and unlimited fishing opportunities. Many of the fly-in lodges are located in Northern Alberta, with some dating back to the 1800’s! (They must be good to last this long…) For scenery and solid action, there’s no better experience than with yourself, a rod and a floatplane.
Alberta plays host to some of the most breathtaking provincial parks and attractions that Canada has to offer. How about a day trip to Banff National Park, or a canoe ride across stunning Lake Louise? There are many lodges located within driving distance to all these fascinating landmarks.
Come and join in the fun of a fishing vacation in beautiful Alberta. The fish will always be biting, and the home-style hospitality will make your experience a tremendous and unforgettable success.
