We did this tour after dropping the kids of for white water rafting which had its meeting point at the casino. Take the 40 at the intersection with the 1, this is about 15 minutes drive from Canmore where you see signs for the Stoney Nakoda Casino. Stop at the Barrier Lake info centre - you can get lots of...

Beautiful mountains and endless blue lakes along this gravel road to the lakes. No tour busses, no huge volumes of tourists, only serious hikers. Along the way we saw deer crossing the road and mountain goats!

Kananaskis County or K County, as locals prefer to call it fondly,is really a Shangrila, a natural terrain with the right proportions of towering mountains, forested valleys,gurgling streams, gushing rivers and serene lakes faithfully reflecting the peaks around. When I first prepared my itinerary for the Western leg of our Trans Canada Road Odyssey from Toronto to the Rockies and... More

What a beautiful drive through the Kananaskis valley. The peaks still have snow caps and the mountains are truly majestic. We have enjoyed several a hike in the area and you don't have to pay expensive park fees. Grab a hike or a bite at the Delta Lodge and your day will be complete. If you are lucky some wildlife...

Driving through this area gives you a small idea of the vastness and beauty of the region. You can get quite high on the roads through this area, and also stop to enjoy the views or follow one of the marked trails from the road. There are a few places to stop for refreshments, but also large areas where you... More

We visited the valley a year ago and it was a stunning site. The vista is so large. Massive mountains and so barren

Drove up the long steep, dirt road into the Kananaski mountains. Was lucky enough to spot a large bull moose on the opposite side of a meadow, stayed for several hours waiting for a photo of it standing up. We got the photo. Drove back onto the main dirt track and within 5 minutes had found a young bull and... More

We decided to avoid the highway and took The Kananaskis Trail. It's was a beautiful drive, through picturesque scenery, past rivers, over mountains, and through forests. There are plenty of places to stop along the way, for walks or photo opportunities. One place we stopped was Canoe Meadows. It's beside a river, with a nice forest walk down to it... More
