It's time to explore Kananaskis
Kananaskis Country is a park system in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies that covers 4,000 square kilometres (1,544 square miles), a collection of formally designated wildland parks, provincial parks, recreation parks, ecological reserves, and cultural zones.
Think rolling foothills and rushing creeks cascading through forests of aspen, pine, and spruce. Knife-edge limestone ridges and jagged summits that cradle glaciers and sapphire-blue alpine lakes. A sprawling wilderness playground begging to be explored by hiking boots, running shoes, canoe, bike, horseback, whitewater raft, snowshoes, skis, or with a fishing rod. Bordering Banff National Park, the region is also an ideal jumping-off point to explore some of the nearby renowned sights.
An hour west of Calgary, 22 kilometres (12 miles) east of Banff, and embracing the town of Canmore, Kananaskis is a wild unspoiled paradise for hikers, skiers, cyclists, canoers, climbers, sightseers, and more.
This is Kananakis. Let’s get outside.
