The Canadian Rockies

Outdoor activities are in abundance with mountain biking, hiking, rafting and wildlife dedicated options to name a few.

The magnificent Rocky Mountains are the key attraction to Alberta stretching from the south-western border north into British Columbia – they are a network of provincial and National Parks that have collectively been declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The spectacular Icefields Parkway is a highlight when discovering Alberta. Stretching 232 km from Jasper to Banff, it is home to one of the most scenic drives in the world with the dramatic snow-capped mountains, pristine mountain lakes and ancient glaciers marking this scenic route. Take to the road on a Canada self-drive holiday and partake in outdoor activities like mountain biking, hiking, rafting and bear-viewing. With glaciers being a common feature of this region, it is worth taking off on a helicopter adventure.
