Pursuit Collection


Relive the romance of the railway era at the Prince of Wales Hotel. For more than 90 years, this majestic seven-story hotel has been a proud hilltop guardian of Waterton Lakes National Park.

From the notoriously strong winds to the regal afternoon tea with gorgeous glacial views, it’s undeniable that this place has many stories to tell. Curious yet? The Prince of Wales is the perfect summer home for employees who have a passion for connecting guests with incredible places.

Our workforce is diverse - from across Canada and beyond. Our team members come here to embrace the extraordinary. To watch the sun rise and set each day in a place that, for many people, exists only in their imagination. To build career experience beside seasoned professionals - a community of people who say ‘yes’ to adventure time and time again. To be a part of the #pursuitlife and live each day with purpose, turning moments into memories.
