In Jasper National Park, on the continental divide, lies the Tonquin Valley Backcountry Lodge. This wilderness haven lies 23 kms from the nearest road at the base of the world famous Rampart Mountains and on the shores of pristine Amethyst Lakes.
Accessible only by hiking or horseback riding, this accommodation is unique among the Jasper backcountry lodges, and offers pack trips and workshops in a true mountain wilderness that everyone can enjoy. With towering peaks and lush meadows, the Tonquin Valley in Alberta provides an authentic Canadian Rockies vacation.
Whether you want to explore the lake in a canoe, fish for abundant brook and rainbow trout in a rowboat, read a book, sit by the campfire or participate in the daily horseback rides, this is the ideal situation. Come and stay in one of our comfortable Canadian Rockies chalets and enjoy an unforgettable wilderness experience.
From the minute I departed on the trail on my trusted pony on route to the Tonquin Valley Back country lodge, something magical happened within my soul. The trip in via horseback takes you back to a time when the pioneers and warden men & woman paved the way to this extraordinary part of the planet. It’s a surreal experience, and being a local of jasper I could not believe I had not experienced this part of the park before.
