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).

If I could describe Yoho in 1 word, it’d be magic. Located only 2 hours from Kananaskis, in Yoho you’ll find massive waterfalls, picturesque hikes, and the prettiest lakes.
