The Rocky Mountains may be associated primarily with the United States, but the northernmost part of the range stretches up into Canada. A trip to Alberta will put visitors smack in the middle of some of the most glorious and majestic mountain views on the continent. Those who want to sit back and enjoy the scenery without having to worry about the logistics of travel should investigate the various Canada coach tours that are available in the region.
Trying to describe the beauty and splendor of these mountains with mere words is a futile endeavor. As with any other natural wonder, they need to be seen to be believed and, ultimately, the only way to know them is to experience them first-hand, not just through pictures and films.
The Canadian Rockies offer several different landscapes. There is the traditional Rocky Mountain terrain that those who have visited places like Colorado and Wyoming will recognize. There are also stretches of the mountains that bear a close resemblance to the Alpine ranges of Europe. Lastly there are hundreds of glaciers at the top of the range that feed the many rivers and lakes of the region. These create an alien, though dazzlingly beautiful environment that truly defies description.
In addition to breathtaking views of the scenic landscape, the area is perfect for those who want to engage in outdoor recreation. Vacationers to the Rockies can enjoy hiking, horseback riding, canoeing, skiing, fishing, and rock and glacier climbing.
