Canadian Rockies

The Canadian Rockies are legendary, thanks to its offering alpine lakes, glaciers and waterfalls, mountain goats clinging to craggy cliffs, and herds of elk roaming wildflower meadows.

Spanning British Columbia and Alberta, this range (considered one of the largest 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.
