Get away from the crowds so you can fully unplug and tune your senses with awe into the natural wonders of Kananaskis Country.
Kananaskis Country covers over 4,000 square kilometres (1,540 square miles) of prairie grasslands, wetlands, rivers, valleys and mountains from the foothills west of Calgary to the Continent Divide.
This protected area was officially created in 1978 when Alberta Premier Peter Lougheed was convinced by a helicopter ride over the area of the need to conserve the natural landscapes and resources of the area.
Since then, Kananaskis Country has been partly protected as a multi-use area for recreation and tourism while still allowing limited cattle grazing, resource extraction, power generation and off-road vehicle use.
The mountain views of Kananaskis Country rivals those of Banff National Park but you will find the trails here much less crowded (especially on weekdays).
