More about Mt. Robson:
Mount Robson Park’s flora and fauna epitomize the western slope of the Rocky Mountains, North Continental Range. On some trails, you can travel between three different vegetation zones during a day-hike. Berg Lake trailhead is conveniently located 5 minute drive from our lodge.
More than 182 species of birds have been documented in the park. All wildlife indigenous to the Rocky Mountains can be found here. Mule and whitetail deer, moose, elk, and black bears call the lower elevations home. Grizzly bears, caribou, mountain goats, and mountain sheep inhabit the higher elevations.
In more than 217,000 hectares of mostly undisturbed wilderness, wildlife populations are allowed to ebb and flow with minimal intervention from humans. There are excellent wildlife viewing opportunities throughout the park. From mountain goats on the many cliffs and rockslides to moose in low wetland areas, patient observers will be well rewarded.
