Movie Reviews

Very impressive selection of accomodations
Mountain Man | Pasadena, CA, USA | 04/04/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I've seen this on the local PBS station. The first thing that I noticed is the way the program shows both the man-made and the handiwork of nature. They complement each other. Also, there is a large variety of facilities described, from rustic to sophisticated. I've been to several of the lodges in years past and this program gives an excellent presentation of those that I've visited.

The reason I gave this 4 stars is because the program could have shown even more of the natural wonders of western Canada- guess they felt the buildings took precedence. In any event, I'm buying this set, 'cause I plan to visit Banff & Jasper Parks next summer & I'm researching!"
Almost like being there!

"Because we, my wife and I, are planning a 25th Anniversary trip to the Canadian Rockies, I was happy to find this DVD on Amazon (also available thru PBS). In fact, the program (nearly 2 hours) enticed us to make this trip when it was first aired several years ago. We now are following through.
Two friends with whom we shared this DVD and who have been there thanked us profusely for "bringing them back" to their trips up there.
The narration, the vistas, the Lodges, themselves are a delight. The real spirit of the area with the various "characters" both long-gone and those still working and living up there are depicted by local historians and actual interviews on the spot. Overall, whether you are planning to go or not, I guarantee you this "soft sell" video of the area (The province of Alberta and the national parks), will stir you and just make you feel like you have been on a mini vacation."
Don't miss Canada

"I've been watching all of the Great Lodges series over the years, and own most of the books. This is a favorite. You should check out the companion has even more lodges than the series features. The only real change from when it was published is that Fairmont bought many of the big hotels. The Travel Guide in the back of the book may be a bit dated, but it's easy to get info on the web. And the DVD is wonderful."
