    Alberta & the Rockies map
    Lakeside Lodges
    Lakeside Lodges
    Experience the true essence of the Canadian Rockies with a stay at a secluded lakeside lodge. With serene locations, breathtaking views and real character, a stay at either Moraine Lake Lodge or Emerald Lake Lodge offers the perfect mountain getaway. Relax on the lake shores or glide out onto the water by canoe. Choose from fine dining, high tea or a lakeside bonfire under the stars! A peaceful lakeside stay can be the highlight of any Rockies holiday.
    The Icefields Parkway
    The Icefields Parkway
    Considered one of the most scenic highways in the world, the Icefields Parkway connects Lake Louise and Jasper. Journey past rushing waterfalls, snow capped peaks and over 100 visible glaciers. The Columbia Icefield, on the boundary of Banff and Jasper National Parks, is one of the largest accumulations of snow and ice south of the Arctic Circle. You can experience a part of this incredible sight with a visit to the Athabasca Glacier.
    Calgary
    Calgary
    Sitting on the edge of the Albertan prairies, Calgary has a pleasant and compact downtown, bordered by the pretty Bow and Elbow Rivers. The city is known as the gateway to the Canadian Rockies but is equally famous for its annual Stampede held every July. This 10 day cowboy festival features one of the world’s largest rodeos, chuck wagon racing, an impressive city parade and is a huge draw for both Canadians and international visitors so make sure to book early.
    Banff
    Banff
    This charming alpine town provides an ideal base for exploring the Rockies. The surrounding national park is a World Heritage Site and offers a variety of outdoor activities and stunning vistas. Hike one of the beautiful local trails, relax in the famous hot springs or enjoy traditional mountain fare in one of the town’s many great restaurants. Take a trip on the gondola for scenic views from the top of Sulphur Mountain or get up close to the mountains on an exhilarating helicopter ride!
    Lake Louise
    Lake Louise
    Known as the ‘Jewel of the Rockies’ this breathtaking glacial lake is easily accessed on a day trip from Banff but we would recommend staying the night to escape the crowds and experience the lake as dawn breaks or the sun sets. Enjoy an easy hike up to the historic Lake Agnes teahouse for a birds-eye view of the sparkling blue waters or for a grander affair, take in the stunning landscape over afternoon tea at the famous Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise hotel.
    Jasper
    Jasper
    Founded in 1911, Jasper is a quintessential mountain town with a history of railway pioneers and explorers and is perfectly positioned to explore the pristine wilderness of the surrounding national park. This World Heritage Site encompasses shimmering glaciers, crystal clear lakes, verdant forests and offers the chance to see grizzly and black bears in the wild. Enjoy a cruise on Maligne Lake, a trip on the Jasper SkyTram, a Harley-Davidson Sidecar tour or get active hiking in the mountains or rafting on the rivers.
