Modern Living in Grande Cache is balanced with mountain wilderness, affordability, and a genuine small-town atmosphere.

An elevation of 4200 feet gives a panoramic view of 21 mountain peaks and 2 river valleys. Grande Cache offers outstanding outdoor adventure, relaxed lifestyle, and unparalleled potential.
Escape into a land of sparkling lakes, rushing rivers, green valleys, and windswept peaks. Nestled on a mountain plateau at 1280 m (4200 ft.), Grande Cache is 214 km (130 mi.) northwest of Jasper National Park in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The Bighorn Highway 40 provides a paved corridor connecting Hinton, Alberta with Mile Zero of the Alaska Highway at Dawson Creek, British Columbia. This is the shortest, most scenic route to Alaska from the United States.
Grande Cache is the Gateway to Willmore Wilderness Park, Alberta’s greatest mountain treasure. Willmore Wilderness Park has an abundance of trails, big game, alpine flowers, and spectacular waterways. To protect its natural splendour, no motorized vehicles are permitted; visitors can access the park by horseback or on foot.
Outside the park, Grande Cache offers outdoor adventures with endless trails for motorized activities that include 4WD, all-terrain vehicles and snow machines. Fishing, golfing, kayaking, canoeing, rafting, wildlife viewing and photographic opportunities await all visitors. Grande Cache has an excellent choice of shops, campgrounds, accommodations, restaurants, and evening entertainment. Those who want a true wilderness experience can stay in a backcountry lodge. Rates are reasonable, with small town hospitality, all geared to entice you to stay.
