The Canadian Rockies

Lake Peyto in the Canadian RockiesThe Canadian Rockies boast some of Canada's most iconic scenery. Azure lakes, frosted mountain peaks, hidden canyons, limestone caves, ice fields and brilliant glaciers have made the Canadian Rocky landscapes world famous.

This untamed wilderness region which straddles the border between British Columbia and Alberta is home to four national parks including Banff and Jasper, historic alpine towns and wildlife including grizzlies, bighorn sheep, elk, cougar and wolves.

The Canadian Rockies have been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and millions of people visit to take in the spectacular natural beauty and enjoy an exciting choice of recreational activities that range from skiing, boarding and horseback riding to rafting, rock climbing and caving.

But there's more to the Canadian Rockies than the rugged outdoor life. There's a busy arts scene, and festivals and events running throughout the year celebrate everything from books and bluegrass to cowboys and photography.
