The northernmost entry on this list has everything you'd expect: tobogganing, sleigh rides, ice skating and other snowy pursuits, either on the extensive property of this contemporary lodge or in the rugged wilderness of nearby Prince Albert National Park. And over the holidays, special events like bonfires and fireworks — and chance encounters with elk (pictured) — certainly won't seem out of place. But what you might not expect in these wild surroundings is the lodge's top-notch Salacia Spa, along with the resort's acclaimed restaurants which serve Rack of Wild Boar, Tenderloin Lobster Newburg — and on Dec. 25, a full Christmas dinner. Rates start at $179 a night.
