Discover

AlbertaYou know the feeling of being

somewhere and wishing you could

stay forever? The Canadian Rockies

is one of those places.

Alberta's Canadian Rocky Mountains are

made for summer fun. You've seen the

pictures - dazzling peaks, lush mountain

meadows brimming with wildflowers,

emerald lakes, virgin forest, towering

waterfalls and wildlife galore. Everywhere

you point your camera is alpine eye

candy.

Stretching from the Continental Divide

on Alberta's southwestern border north

into British Columbia, the Canadian

Rockies are a network of provincial and

national parks that have been named a

UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Famous for many activities, hiking in

the Rockies is a universal favourite. Get

ready for mind-blowing panoramas

along thousands of kilometres of

trails. Good for mountain biking and

horseback riding, too. Stay in castle-like

accommodation or authentic mountain

lodges or bring the RV and camp close

to all the creature comforts. Paddle,

raft, fish to your heart's content. Play a

signature golf course. Soak outdoors in

natural hot springs. Take a gondola ride

to the top of the world in Banff. Maybe

you'll spot moose, elk, deer, bighorn sheep,

black bears or mountain goats. You'll be

totally captivated by our Canadian Rocky

Mountain high.

Tour the Icefields Parkway, which connects

Banff and Jasper national parks. Try to

count the glaciers along 232 km (144 mi)

of spectacular scenery, knowing you're on

a highway that National Geographic calls

one of the most scenic drives in the world.

Visit the alpine towns of Jasper, Lake Louise

and Banff. Less than 20 minutes east of

Banff National Park and you're in the town

of Canmore, your adventure connection to

Kananaskis Country, a series of provincial

parks on the flanks of the Rockies. Another

hour east and you're in Calgary. To the

north, Jasper National Park is four hours

west of Edmonton.
