Alberta’s stunning Rocky Mountains are perhaps its biggest attraction. Protected by the Banff and Jasper national parks, the spectacular mountains run along the border of British Columbia and Alberta.

All up, the mountain chain runs south across Canada and the US for more than 4,830 km (3,000 miles), from the northern wilds of British Columbia all the way through Colorado to New Mexico.

Experience the grandeur of the Canadian Rockies by driving along the Icefields Parkway, and visiting the glacier Icefields Centre.

Hire a pair of skis and glide down the legendary slopes in winter, or go for a hike in spring and summer to glorious blue lakes like Lake Louise and quaint alpine-style hamlets such as Banff.

Practical Info

The Trans-Canada Highway and Icefields Parkway are the main routes through Canada’s Rocky Mountains. The main towns are Banff in the south, and Jasper further north.

The region is covered by a thick layer of snow from October, so if you’re wanting to walk through the Rockies, time your visit for mid-year.
