If you fall in love with the Rockies, be prepared to surrender your heart for a lifetime.

You’ll know that you’ve been smitten when you feel a flutter of joy every time your eyes travel upwards towards a lofty peak. When you feel exposed and vulnerable without the cup of the mountains to stagger your horizon, you’ll know that you’ve entered into a timeless love affair.

Banff and Lake Louise are among the most beautiful places in the world, and their appeal comes down to the mountains. As an ardent fan, you’ll soon come to know each mountain by its name and personality, but here are a few of our favourite mountains of the Canadian Rockies to get you started.
