Last weekend my husband and I packed the Acadia and headed to Nipika Mountain Resort. Where? That’s what I said. I’ve been in Calgary almost 15 years and have never heard of this place. Well now that you know it exists, you MUST go. It’s a jewel in the Rockies. It’s off of Hwy 93 on the way to Radium! Here’s the link to Nipika Mountain Resort.
What a wonderful and majestic get away. Quiet, peaceful and FULL of things to do for the whole family. And for us it was perfect as we got to bring out dog Priddis! It’s pet friendly too! My husband enjoyed a morning of fishing, while my son and I (along with our friends that joined us) enjoyed a lovely walk. That lovely walk also saw us using our “survival” skills of yelling and screaming when we crossed paths with a black bear. (use bear as your bonus code) He quickly scurried away into the bushes.
A weekend or a week at Nipika will have you going back for more rest and relaxation! It’s a perfect chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. I’m thinking of making a girls weekend out of it this winter too! Maybe I’ve spilled the beans on a “best kept secret”… but trust me; you’ll want to go out there for the wildlife, the picturesque mountains, and the songs of the wild!
