This book focuses on the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks — an interconnected system of provincial and national parks covering more than 30,000 square kilometres (18,630 mi2). These parks vary in popularity and access – some see millions of visitors each year, while others see visitors in the tens of thousands. Some parks are easily accessed from a major highway, while others require rigorous journeys by foot, horse or plane. Each of these parks offers a unique twist on the dramatic landscapes that define the Rockies – towering mountain peaks, rushing rivers, ancient glaciers, wildflower-filled meadows, brilliant blue lakes and dense forests make up this outdoor paradise. With so much area to explore, it can be overwhelming trying to decide on where to go. Luckily, our Canadian Rockies Mapbook provides a well-organized and easy-to-use breakdown of the region’s parks to help you decide on the adventure that is right for you. With state-of-the-art topographic maps, detailed trip-planning resources and meticulously researched adventure listings, our Mapbook will ensure you make the most out of your Rockies experience.
