Where is The Bachelorette season 17 filmed?

Filming was limited to the specific location, due to Covid-19 measures.
The 550-acre resort sits between the Sandia Mountains and the Rio Grande River, with 350 guest rooms and suites for the cast.
Guests can fully immerse themselves in the Southwestern culture, with trail horse rides, romantic dinner settings and salsa-making competitions!
The picturesque filming location has incredible views. Visitors can cruise through the Bosque trails or see the view from the 10,378-ft Sandia Peak.
Season 17 was originally planned to be filmed at Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge in Alberta, Canada. However, travel restrictions led producers to change their minds in February 2021.

- March to April 2021
Filming reportedly began in March, before packing up the cameras a week ahead of schedule in April.
Katie Thurston wrapped her show season early, by quickly sending home men she wasn’t interested in dating.
This suggests she may have found a special man during her season, and that the entire dating show went successfully.
