Lethbridge Hotels

Arriving in Lethbridge you'll soon discover that most of the reasons to visit are completely natural. The stunning landscape of the area is marked out in particular by the coulees – valleys – which were formed over centuries by erosion, and by the impressive Old Man River which flows through the region. It's not a lush place, but that stark and rugged environment is a fair reflection on the region's history, given its mining past, and the terrain makes it a popular retreat for hiking enthusiasts.

Things to see

Although Lethbridge is a quintessentially rough-hewn example of Canadian natural wonder, one of its must-see corners is the Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden. An absolute haven of tranquility, this is a place to come and switch off from modern life, with a range of rocks dating back millions of years, and handcrafted Japanese architectural structures combining to create an oasis of calm. It's located by the Henderson Lake which is, in its own way, another idyllic local place to while away an hour or two with a leisurely stroll. A different sort of park, Nicholas Sheran Park, is named for one of the city's founders and is a great resource for jogging, fishing pike and carp, and picnicking, as well as boasting a gold course for unwinding on the green. Another spot where you can hone your swing is Paradise Canyon Golf Course, where you needn't worry about a stray ball winding up in anyone's picnic basket.

Hotels in Lethbridge

While there are plenty of options when it comes to accommodation in Lethbridge, don't expect to find high-end luxury – it's not just the terrain that's no-nonsense and in-step with its old mining past. That's not to say there aren't plenty of hotels in Lethbridge which will give you everything you'll need for a comfortable stay, however, with lots of mid-range chains and independents offering WiFi, flat-screen televisions, and tea and coffee making facilities as standard. Some even have on-site pools and fitness centers. You might save if you're prepared to head a little further out of center, taking advantage of the more suburban motels and inns.

Where to stay

You'll want to stay in Lethbridge proper to ensure you're close at hand to the few, but notable, major attractions. You'll soon find it's a place marked by Chinooks – or warm westerly winds – and one of contrasts, thanks to the stark coulees and lush greenery of its parks and sports fields. It's a place keen to hang on to its past, with a historic building preservation program in place. From its huge, iconic Rail Bridge to its arts centre and plentiful sunshine, Lethbridge is a simple, but well-preserved, place steeped in its agricultural life and close relationship to its unique landscape.

How to get to Lethbridge

The likeliest entry point into Lethbridge is via Lethbridge Airport, which is just to the south of the city center and handles internal flights from Calgary around six or seven times per day. You can also get to Lethbridge via Greyhound bus from Calgary, with regular service and a journey time of around three hours. There are buses in Lethbridge itself, but much of your time will probably be spent exploring the region on foot to get up close to all its natural charms.
