Canadian Rockies

There are several places that are like heaven for adventurists and nature lovers, and this is by all means one of them. The Canadian Rockies comprise the Canadian segment of the North American Rocky Mountains range. They are the eastern part of the Canadian Cordillera, extending from the Interior Plains of Alberta to the Rocky Mountain Trench of British Columbia. The southern end borders Idaho and Montana of the USA. The northern end is at the Liard River in northern British Columbia. It offers you the hikes that you don’t want to miss, scenic drives and many more natural highlights. Winter is known as the best time to visit this place.

The Canadian Rockies cover a large area and include many small, less well known towns often only a short distance from the towns of Banff, Lake Louise, Canmore and Jasper where you can choose from a variety of great activities and places like world class ski hills, top ranked golf courses, whitewater rafting, cave tours, wildlife watching and much more. Five national parks are located within the Canadian Rockies and they offer unique mountain landscapes found there, comprising peaks, glaciers, lakes, waterfalls, canyons and limestone caves as well as fossils. Throughout the Rockies, and especially in the national parks, the Alpine Club of Canada maintains a series of alpine huts for use by mountaineers and adventurers.
