Backpacking In The Canadian Rockies


I arrived to Canada on a Working Holiday Visa with an intention to travel from West to East Coast and back, all in just a little over a year. However shortly after my arrival in Calgary and my first visit to the Rockies I was taken by the beautiful views. I knew right then, that I want to get to know them better. 

 

An idea came to my head to try and tackle as many backcountry hikes in the Canadian Rockies as my knees (and the short hiking season) will allow me. Thus the backpacking section of my Canadian Rockies and Beyond Guide was born. 

 

Here you will find the resources to plan a multiday backpacking excursion in the Canadian Rockies including information about making reservations for the backcountry campsites, guides for individual trips and beautiful photos I have taken during the hikes.
