Kananaskis Country is a stunning wilderness area that lies just outside of Canmore, Alberta. The region borders Banff National Park and the scenery rivals it's famous neighbour.
The key benefit to outdoor fun in Kananaskis Country is the complete lack of crowds! It might be near Banff, but it feels a world away.
Hiking trails, bike paths, and beautiful lakes abound and it's quite common to have them all to yourself even during the busiest summer weekends!
Check out the Upper and Lower Kananaskis Lakes at sunset, as it's a prime location near the Continental Divide that offers stunning evening light.
