Green Getaway: Canadian Rockies

Adventure beckons in B.C. and Alberta! Hike, climb or simply relax in some of the world’s most beautiful places—plus, you just might spot mountain goats, grizzly bears, caribou, wolves or cougars. You could spend months exploring this spectacular region, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Wander on your own or hook up with ecotour operators such as Sierra Club Outings, G Adventures or Nipika Mountain Resort.
