Rocky Mountain Trips from Calgary
By Viator, October 2013
Described as the "jewel" of the region, Lake Louise and the Victoria Glacier are an excellent place to start your exploration of the Canadian Rockies. Make the trek from the open prairie up into the foothills that lead into the rugged isolation of one of the world’s great mountain ranges in pursuit of the glaciers and mountain lakes in and around Banff National Park.
You will cross the Continental Divide as you venture into Yoho National Park via the scenic Kicking Horse Pass in pursuit of exhilarating class 4+ rapids on the Kicking Horse River. The journey from civilization to the heart of the wild is reason enough to descend into the Valley of the Ten Peaks, past Emerald and Moraine Lakes and the Spiral Tunnels before taking the plunge into the Kicking Horse.
No exploration of the Canadian Rockies is complete without a day spent enjoying the mighty alpine waterfalls to be found in the region. Takakkaw Falls is an excellent example of the sort of marvels available to prospective visitors. The highest waterfall on the Canadian mainland, this marvel takes its name from the Cree language, roughly translated as “it is magnificent”, and it certainly is.
