Alberta Rocky Mountains


The majestic beauty of the Canadian Rockies is known throughout the world. Simply driving into the Rockies can be an awesome experience, thanks to the astounding landscape of snow-capped mountain peaks, pristine lakes, rare icefields, and deep canyons. Indeed, Icefields Parkway is one of the most scenic highways on the continent. The road connects Banff and Jasper National Parks, passing more than 100 glaciers on the way. Take time to stop by the aptly name Weeping Wall, and to enjoy panoramic views of Peyto Lake. Don't forget your camera.

The Canadian Rockies are accessible year-round, making them a haven for outdoor recreation enthusiasts. In the winter, enjoy downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing. Toboganning and ice-skating are popular activities here, too. Warm yourself in hot springs. When it is too cold to remain outdoors for an extended period, find a scenic spot and enjoy a warm drink - the cold, crisp air enables 
you to see for miles and miles. 

Once the snow melts, grab your mountain bike and head off to explore the trails around Lake Louise, also known as the "Jewel of the Rockies." Or hike the innumerable trails that span the Canadian Rockies. Get out in nature any way you can - in a canoe, on foot, on a horse, whatever! You can even ride a gondola up Sulphur Mountain in Banff. Once you are nice and hot, dive into clear, cold waters of one of the lakes here - it will take your breath away. 

There are a number of interesting towns scattered throughout the Canadian Rockies, enabling you to enjoy fine dining, browse art galleries, and shop to your heart's content. These are also some of the most beautifully situated towns in Alberta. Canmore is bordered by Banff National Park to the west and the north, while the town of Banff is actually within the park. Stunning lakes, roaring waterfalls, and massive glaciers surround the charming town of Jasper, in Jasper National Park.

Everyone should visit the Canadian Rockies - and stay at an Alberta Bed and Breakfast - at least once in a lifetime.
