Great atmosphere. Delicious food and numerous trails. Galena is wonderful in summer and winter. Equipment for snow shoe, skate ski and cross country is available for rental. Trail passes are sold here too.

Went to Galena Lodge with 8 friends to enjoy a weekend of snowshoeing and XC skiing. We had 2 yurts which were comfy and well equipped. The folks at the lodge and the shop could not have been nicer or more accommodating. We had dinner at the restaurant one evening and it was excellent. There were enough options to satisfy...

We decided to come here on an off day in between ski days. We ended up renting snowshoes and exploring the trails. The trails are pretty isolated and everything is very beautiful and peaceful. We had the Cowboy Cabin Trail Loop almost to ourselves and had a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who comes...

Galena lodge is a wonderful place to get away from the tourist trap of Sun Valley. It's gorgeous up here. We took a two hour snowshoe tour with Bella. She was great. I plan to come back someday and take a Nordic lesson. Great rental shop, nice cafeteria, great $8 round trip bus ride from Ketchum.

We had a wonderful day Nordic skiing at this historic site. The trails were perfectly groomed and provided terrain for all skill levels. The staff were welcoming and very helpful and the lodge itself as lovely place to sit by the fire and relax after an outing. The food looked delicious.

Just 30 minutes north of Ketchum on Hwy 75 is, in my opinion the best place to spend a day Nordic Skiing in the Valley. With over 25 km of trails (in addition to access to an additional 30 km that heads south toward the SNRA) there is truly something for every skill level. If you don't have your own...

Put Galena Lodge on your must-visit list if ever in the Sun Valley area. The snowshoeing and x-country skiing trails are amazing and the countryside gorgeous. We chose a picture picture blue-sky day and had an amazing time traipsing around the backcountry on easy-to-manage trails. Afterwards, do plan on having lunch and a drink as their food is delicious, the...

Visited the lodge for a wedding and was impressed by the venue. Beautiful meadow overlooking the mountains a short walk from the actual lodge and road. Easy up hill walk of 10 minutes okay for all ages. The lodge itself is rustic but comfortable. Good food, nice staff and a sizeable parking lot make this an excellent venue for future...

We drove from Ketchum to this beautiful Lodge with the advice from a gentleman at the local coffee shop. Beautiful drive and found this rustic lodge in a beautiful setting. The food was fantastic and the staff was very friendly. It appeared to be a local hot spot and we could see why.

We had a good time tromping around in our snowshoes. We brought our own gear so payed a $5 fee to use the trails. There are plenty of snowshoe trails to choose from and they're all groomed. But if you like walking in deep snow, you'll have to make your own way. These trails were so used and packed I...

“We stayed in the Star Yurt. It can sleep eight people, but we had a group of six, and that was the perfect size...I think, with eight people, it may be a bit crowded. It was fun to take a sauna after a moonlight ski.”
