Untamed and Unspoiled
Wild horses run free in Kananaskis Country and so will your imagination as you explore the area’s more than 4,250 square kilometres (2640 square miles) of great outdoors. Relax at the Kananaskis Nordic Spa, play golf, go for a hike, or take a horseback ride in the pristine Canadian wilderness found within Kananaskis Country’s five protected provincial parks and one ecological reserve.
Things to Do
Kananaskis Wildlife Drive
Drive through untouched Rockies wilderness and stop at the breathtaking viewpoints and interpretive walks along the way.
Hike this easy 1-kilometre (0.6-mile) round-trip loop near Mount Kidd and – if the conditions are right – gaze at its reflection in the pond’s crystal clear waters.
Giddy-up! Climb into the saddle and explore the natural beauty of the Kananaskis Valley the cowboy way, on a one-hour or all-day, scenic trail ride.
Enter this 50,000-square-foot indoor-outdoor alpine sanctuary and you may never want to leave the warm waters of the salt-water float pool or the embrace of the spa’s heated hammocks.
