Purcell Mountain Lodge

Purcell Mountain Lodge

Map
Bald Mountain, Golden, British Columbia V0A 1H0

The Altitude: 7,200 feet.

 

The Perch: Set in an alpine meadow right in British Columbia’s Glacier National Park, the 11-room Purcell Mountain Lodge is surrounded by snow-capped peaks and with no sign of civilization for miles. You won’t find many other visitors—except for the handful of grizzly bears who return year after year with their cubs.

 

The Journey: Taking a 15-minute helicopter flight from Golden, British Columbia (the nearest town), is the only way to get here. You’ll fly over craggy peaks, glaciers, and teal-blue alpine lakes, but not a single access road—because there aren’t any.

 

The Best View: All guest rooms overlook the surrounding mountains and meadows—but book the lone suite and you’ll get your own private fireplace, lovely after a day of snowshoeing.
