Canadian Rocky Mountains


Canadian Rocky Mountains Travel Guide

The Rocky Mountains of western North America stretch more than 3,000 miles (4,828km) from Mexico, through the United States and into Canada and Alaska. Dividing the Canadian provinces of British Columbia and Alberta, the peaks of the Canadian Rockies tower over the plains, rising to 11,975ft (3,650m).

The alpine towns sprinkled along the Rockies in the southwest of Alberta are an unspoiled mountain playground where each season has its own unique beauty and selection of activities. National parks abound in this area, offering the chance for mountain adventures and recreation.

The main Rockies national parks in Alberta are Banff National Park, Waterton Lakes National Park, and Jasper National Park. The Willmore Wilderness Park, just north of Jasper National Park, is also a glorious wilderness area. These beautiful, protected areas are home to some rare and endangered animals, including woodland caribou, grizzly bears, wolverines, and great grey owls.

The towns in the area, like Banff and Jasper, offer a vast number of tourist attractions to entertain and entrance visitors all year round, with outdoor activities of all kinds designed to complement the natural attractions.
