Explore some of the most impressive mountains in the world.

By: The Outbound Collective + Save to a List

When we see photos of the Canadian Rockies, we immediately have that “I want to be there right now!” feeling and we just know that photos don't come close to doing them justice. With four national parks and several provincial parks to explore sprawling out around the Icefields Parkway, there are hundreds of miles of gorgeous trails to explore within just a few hours of each other. Check out some of our community's favorite hikes in the Canadian Rockies and hopefully we’ll see you on the trail soon!
