Canadian Rockies outdoor activities

Girls Gone White Water Rafting in Golden

By Kaitlyn Forde

After living in the Canadian Rockies for more than two years, indulging in tourist attractions has lost its lustre. I did as much as I could during my first summer in the mountains: I canoed along the Bow River, went sightseeing in Jasper, checked out the dinosaurs in Drumheller, and made a very long daytrip to Waterton National Park. I thought I had absorbed everything Alberta had to offer.

Massive. Rugged. Incredible. Whatever your interpretation, there’s no denying that the Canadian Rockies leave an impression.

In winter, peaks and valleys draped in snow and ice create a magical outdoor playground that entices adventurers into its wilderness.

For professional climber, paraglider and kayaker Will Gadd, growing up here shaped his identity and sparked a lifetime of legendary exploits.
