“I’ve had the privilege of traveling all over the world, but my week spent staying at Coliseum Mountain Resort topped every trip I’ve been on! The lodge my group stayed at was excellent, Nordegg was the perfect distance to see all the major attractions like Banff and Jasper, wildlife was everywhere, hiking and canoeing excursions were both breathtaking and relaxing, the list goes on and on. Canada Outdoor Adventures took us to the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen!

I will be back and can’t wait to have more Canadian adventures!“
