With some of the most beautiful alpine scenery in the world the Canadian Rocky Mountains should be on everyone's must-see list. In the vast rugged beauty of the Rockies you'll find towering snow covered mountains, pristine alpine forests, sparkling mountain lakes as well as some of the best skiing and hiking in the world.
The spectacular natural beauty of Banff National Park and Jasper National Park are breathtaking and there are countless varieties of flora and fauna to be seen everywhere.
The township of Banff is celebrated as the highest town in Canada and has a relaxed festive atmosphere. It is a great base for skiing in the winter or hiking in the summer. Nearby Lake Louise is one of the jewels of the Canadian Rockies and the deep green-blue waters of transform into a magical snowy playground in the winter.
The magnificent Icefield Parkway winds 230 kms through beautiful rugged scenery between Lake Louise and Jasper. Here you can visit the amazing Sunwapta Falls or walk on the Athabasca Glacier. All along the Parkway there is an amazing amount of wildlife and if you're lucky you'll spot moose and deer and the occasional majestic bear lumbering across the road - just don't get too close!
The incredibly beautiful Johnstone Canyon is just off the Bow Valley Parkway and provides an easy walk to see the crystal clear water rushing through the canyon before ending up in Bow River far to the south. In winter the waterway is transformed into the Johnstone Canyon Icewalk where waterfalls are frozen into blue and white vertical ice-falls and the forest is covered in a blanket of white.
With so many different things to see and do you could spend a lifetime exploring the Canadian Rockies and still not see everything. But what you do see will continue to amaze you long after you've left this exquisite place.
