Autumn Sojourn at Diana Lake

Invermere Branch
Diana Lake, Pinnacle Valley, Rocky Mountains

Hiking among golden larches, dining on scrumptious food prepared by host and chef, Amanda Orlowski, elevated conversations (ie. at 2163 meters!), and gazing up at a dark, star-blanketed sky. Interested? We have a special opportunity to spend one night up at DIANA LAKE LODGE, nestled in an alpine basin on the western edge of Kootenay National Park. Not only that, we are fortunate that our group will include long-time bear habitat ecologist, Bryon Benn, who can enlighten us on bear behaviour and conservation issues.
