To encourage our guests to explore the breathtaking sights that surround our lodge we provide an on staff Adventure Specialist. Our Adventure Specialist has the inside scoop on the best hikes, wildlife viewing, sights, cultural experiences and activities you can partake in while you join us here at Cathedral Mountain Lodge. From the moment you reserve your room, our Adventure Specialist will be willing to help you plan a trip that hits all the right notes. For guests wishing to explore the park on foot, there are literally hundreds of fabulous trails each of which is an exceptional outdoor experience. Having hiked all of these we can point you in the right direction ensuring you do not miss out on the hike of a lifetime.
For those of you wishing to expand your horizon beyond the local trails, you may view the park using some rather distinctive exploration vehicles.

All these activities perfectly marry the experience and the unique World Heritage Site you are visiting.
