Sports, Nature and Recreation
The Canadian Rockies
Majestic, dramatic and breathtaking are the countless Peaks that are home in the Canadian Rockies. Mountains such as Mount Robson, located in the Mount Robson Provincial Park, or Snow Dome with its Dome Glacier, located in the Columbia Icefields are reaching far over 3,000 meters. Just to view the Canadian Rockies is an adventure itself. It is an overwhelming experience, recognizing the enormous Nature's strength, used to form the Canadian Rockies.
The Canadian Rockies National Parks
Five National Parks are located within the Canadian Rockies, four of which interlock and make up the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks World Heritage site. These four Parks are Banff, Jasper, Kootenay and Yoho. The fifth National Park is Waterton, which lies farther south, along the international boundary. The World Heritage site also includes three British Columbia Provincial Parks that adjoin the four National Parks: Hamber, Mount Assiniboine and Mount Robson. Together, all these National and Provincial Parks were declared a single UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984 for the unique Mountain Landscapes found there, comprising peaks, glaciers, lakes, waterfalls, canyons and limestone caves as well as fossils (e.g. the Burgess Shale, once a World Heritage Site in its own right, is now part of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks World Heritage Site). Numerous other provincial parks are located in the Canadian Rockies.
