The following elements contribute to ensuring the Canadian Rockies Travel Guide will help you plan a memorable vacation:

 LOCAL EXPERTISE: All content on this website has been created by locals who live in the Canadian Rockies.

 BEST OF THE BEST: The difference between our recommendations and those found on other websites is that we spend most of our time exploring the Canadian Rockies—we love camping out, we write books about hiking, we dine in local restaurants, and we know the best fishing spots.

 UP TO DATE: Unlike websites operated by multinational companies far removed from the region, we live here in the Canadian Rockies, so we can keep content up-to-date, whether it’s describing hiking trail closures or telling you about a new café.

 INSPIRING IMAGES: All photos appearing on this site were taken by our own photographers, allowing you to see what the Canadian Rockies look like before leaving home.
