Stay green when you go away

Those interested in a little green with their getaway would do well to plan a trip to Mount Engadine Lodge in Canmore, Alberta. Not only is this delightful nine-room, back-country outpost nestled in the foothills of the majestic Rockies — promising guests both restorative and recreational opportunities galore — but it also shares some of its earth-friendly philosophy along the way.

Travellers will get the chance to see how easy it can be to conserve energy and reduce their carbon footprints by following the lead of innkeepers Chris and Shari-Lynn Williams, who mindfully yet subtly ramped up Mount Engadine’s enviro-factor by relying on recycling, composting and earth-friendly products and practices that detract nothing from the luxuriousness or loveliness of the facility itself. Until October 12: $169 to $199 per person, including full buffet breakfast, build-it-yourself lunch, afternoon tea and a gourmet dinner. Free for kids under four and 50-percent off for kids under 12. Stay more than three nights and knock 10-percent off. (403) 678-4080; www.mountengadine.com .
