The Rockies

Rising dramatically from the prairie, the snow-capped Rockies have long been honoured by Indigenous people as “The Backbone of the World”, a spectacular and spiritual landscape of towering peaks, alpine meadows, turquoise lakes, waterfalls and abundant wildlife.

Walk with an Indigenous guide through pristine valleys for sightings of bears, elk, coyote, wolves and moose, discovering local traditions along the way. Learn about bush craft, the power of plant medicine and ancient survival skills. Hear the haunting melodies of Indigenous singers and visit galleries and cultural outposts in the scenic mountain communities of Canmore, Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper.
