Kananaskis Country

β€œIt’s not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.”

Sir Edmund Hillary


Welcome to Kananaskis Country

Kananaskis Country (aka K-country) is my favourite hiking destination in the Canadian Rockies. There’s something SO impressive about the vibrant lakes, massive mountains, and technical scrambles here.

Kananaskis itself spans a total of 428,058 hectares and its home to 5 Provincial Parks and 4 Wildland areas (more about this here).

Note that you need a conservation pass to enter Kananaskis and that this area is in prime grizzly territory: learn proper bear safety and always carry bear spray.

Here’s the official Kananaskis website and here’s a list of the campsites offered in the area.
