Discover the geology of the mighty Athabasca Glacier on a hiking excursion or take in stunning views of six mountain ranges at Sulphur Gondola in Banff. Then, explore awe-inspiring glacier-fed waterfalls and lakes as you drive along the Icefields Parkway—one of the world’s most scenic mountain roadways.

Getting to the Canadian Rockies

If you’re flying from the US, it’s easiest to fly into Calgary, about an hour and a half from Banff National Park. From there, you can either hire a car or hop on a shuttle bus to reach the Rockies.

Once you’re in the mountains, explore awe-inspiring lakes and waterfalls on a boat cruise or walk along pristine hiking trails. Then, discover the history and culture of Canada’s most famous mountain town on a walking tour led by a local. Take in the majestic view of Mount Robson, the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies, from the viewing platform at the top of the Sulphur Gondola.

If the skies are clear, learn about the Aurora Borealis at the Planetarium and Telescope Combo Tour at the Jasper Science Centre. And if it’s too cloudy, 4K instant replays of past live Jasper Night Sky views are shown in the dome theater. This experience is a must for any traveler to the Canadian Rockies!
