What is around Birch Haven, you ask?

Lush valleys, forest-clad slopes, tundra-like landscapes, alpine meadows, barren moraine fields, snowcapped spires, glacier icecaps, emerald lakes and more!

Click on the links below to see photos of the surrounding area:

Stunning views surround you at your very own doorstep. The jagged peaks are up close and personal in Canmore...

To the northwest lie Lake Louise and the Icefields Parkway, headed towards Jasper...

To the west are Yoho and Kootenay National Parks...

To the south are Kananaskis Country and Mt Assiniboine Park...

Indeed, one lifetime may not quite be sufficient to take it all in!

Having travelled the globe extensively, we can quite safely say that this spot holds up as one of the most visually stunning areas the world.

We fell head over heels in love with this awe-inspiring location during a vacation here in the summer of 2001. We had hardly scratched the surface of available activities in those 2 weeks and realized that it would take a lifetime to enjoy the gifts of the area.

We quickly decided that we wanted to own a slice of heaven, to have a special place to rejuvenate our minds, reassess our priorities and recalibrate our lives. Hence, the genesis of Birch Haven, a place we are now proud to share with you...
