This guide covers Alberta's Jasper National Park, Banff National Park, along with BC's amazing Yoho and Kootenay National Parks. Other Rocky Mountain Parks and areas covered include Kananaskis Country, Waterton Lakes National Park and Mount Robson Provincial Park, with majestic Mt. Robson. The Canadian Rockies see about four million visitors annually. Easily accessible adventures include walking, hiking and backpacking; mountain biking and bicycle touring; fishing, boating and rafting; horseback riding; skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing; and so much more. This is a guide for places to stay and eat, sights, activities, festivals - written by a lifelong resident of the Canadian Rockies. Maps, photos.

"Having been to the Canadian Rockies numerous times and thinking we had seen all the wonderful places before we discovered this book, we now must plan many more trips there to explore all the other incredible places described in detail in this Guide. With numerous beautiful color photographs, most of which are by the author, this guide is a treasure because the scenery of the Canadian Rockies is some of the most spectacular in the world. A unique feature of this guide book is that it includes hiking details for each of the areas described. Since we have hiked many of these areas, we know this is a necessary and valuable tool for planning hikes. With each section Koller has Hikes, Drives, Sights, and Activities, so for non-hikers it is just as valuable, also giving information for booking guided tours. The Canadian Rockies have so many wonderful places to discover and some are quite hidden unless you know where to look, as you will with this guide. Everything from camping to exclusive hotels and restaurants are catalogued also." -- Bonnie Neely (Amazon)
