The 2019 Shanghan Lun Lines Retreat North-America is being held at Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge in Jasper, Alberta, Canada.
The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge is a resort situated within Jasper National Park. The lodge is built around Lac Beauvert, which is a 15-minute walk from the Jasper village center. The lodge has four different in-house restaurants, a lounge, spa and health club, hiking trails, a golf course, cabins, a complete conference center, and Jasper’s own planetarium.
Jasper is a small town in the Canadian Rockies known for its dark night skies, canoeing, fishing, glacier-fed lakes, hiking, wildlife, ice fields, hot springs, and more. While situated in this remote setting we will be able to enjoy a full moon, which is scheduled to appear right near the summer solstice. We may also get a glimpse of the aurora borealis.
Jasper is located approximately five hours from both the Calgary and the Edmonton international airports. There are a number of shuttle bus companies and rental car options that can be booked to transport registrants from the airports along beautifully scenic routes to the lodge.
The trip to Jasper is stunning! You will be travelling through the serene Alberta foothills to the gloriously rugged Rocky Mountains. Keep your eyes on the roadside, too, to catch a glimpse of bears, wolves, or elk in their natural environment.
