The Canadian Rockies are legendary for good reason—alpine lakes, glaciers and waterfalls, mountain goats clinging to craggy cliffs, and herds of elk roaming wildflower meadows.
Spanning British Columbia and Alberta, one of the largest mountain ranges in North America is a top place for hiking, climbing, wildlife safaris, skiing, and backcountry adventures. Take a road trip or whitewater rafting tour, camp, or stay at a luxe alpine lodge.
For outdoor adventure and natural discoveries, hop in a car and journey through the Canadian Rockies.
