Canadian Rockies (Paperback)

Unavailable. Replaced by new version by new supplier.


Stunning mountains, alpine lakes, shimmering glaclers, and abundant wildlife await the visitor to the Canadian Rockies, one of North America's premier travel destinations. This four-season area has much to offer travellers and Andrew Hempstead's Moon Handbooks Canadian Rockies is the resource to uncovering its hidden treasures. Five parks are found in the Canadian Rockies-Banff, Jasper, Kootenay, Yoho, and Waterton Lakes-each filled with miles of hiking and skiing trails, hundreds of campsites, and numerous lake and rivers. Visitors can explore the world-famous Burgess Shale, home of many fossils; brave rafting the plunge on the Kicking Horse River; or sample regional Rocky Mountain cuisine- caribou, moose, and elk. This revised edition includes measurements in both the imperial and metric systems; an expanded accommodations section; helpful sidebars on cutting flight costs or finding great hotels rooms for less; as well as website listings for many destinations. After a day in the field, hit the bars and pubs of Canmore and Banff, or soak in the luxuriant waters of Radium Hot Springs.

Informative, practical, and inspiring, Moon Handbooks Canadian Rockies is an essential guide to planning a trip to this awe-inspiring part of the world.
