     HIKING IN ALBERTA

   Great Walks in Our Province
   HIKING ALBERTA
   Overlooking Glacier, Jasper National Park

This has to be the number one favorite activity in the Rockies. We have hiking trails of great beauty for all ages and abilities. Memories that visitors take home with them are often associated with either easy walks or great treks that carry them to some of the Rockies stunning scenery. Canyons, waterfalls, rivers and our amazing aqua-colored lakes are all easily accessible by the best transportation of all, the foot. Breathe in some fresh moutain air and work up an appetite for that great Rocky Mountain cuisine you'll have back in Jasper or Banff! For the elderly there are many great sights within a few hundred feet of the Icefields Parkway!

Canyon Crawling?
In the late, late fall the Rocky Mountain canyons and trails transform into another World. Rivers change into flat walkways, waterfalls become suspended in time, wildlife changes color and texture.  Humans can see a new face on mother nature. Winter brings amazing changes to the Rockies. Hike up to waterfalls that have become gigantic curtains of ice and watch for wildlife in winter coats of fur. It is best to experience this with a guide such as those provided by Jasper Adventure Center.

FROZEN WATERFALLS ANYONE?

After a great day hiking why not visit one of Alberta's great  SPAS OR HOTSPRING POOLS?
