More Info

With more than 1.600 kilometers of well maintained trails in Banff National Park alone, Alberta is absolutely brimming with amazing hiking opportunities.

Heading north to Jasper National Park or west into British Columbia for Yoho National Park yields even more hiking and stunning scenery. Renting a car is the easiest way to get around Alberta, but parking is limited in the national parks, which are most easily reached by shuttles.

Check with your guide for a recommendation on the best way to get where you are headed. And regardless of where you go, you’re in for a treat as the Rockies are astoundingly beautiful in the summer and when the leaves change in the autumn as well.

 

 

 

Good to Know

 

What’s the weather like?

During the summer, average daily temperatures are around 21ºC in the mountains and decrease slightly as you increase elevation. Alberta is in the rain shadow of the Rockies and only receives 600 mm of precipitation all year, so it’s pretty dry, especially in the summer.

How to get there:

Any hiking trip to Alberta begins with a flight in the international airport at Calgary (YCC). From here, it is easy to rent a car of take a bus and make the two hour journey west into the mountains. Shuttles to certain national parks are also readily available.
