“The focus is on the national park rather than on commercial activities such as gondola rides and taverns… Highly recommended if your interest is hiking, walking, sightseeing the natural panorama...”

Detailed information and photos of the hundreds of peaks and the lakes you’ll see as you drive through the parks.

Several hundreds of spots where you can safely stop to enjoy views, hike, picnic, camp, and learn about the landscape. At each of these locations, we’ll provide all the interpretive information and photos you’ll need to understand what you’ll be seeing and we’ll suggest short walks and hikes as well.

Under an official partnership agreement with Parks Canada, we are pleased to be able to provide information, photos, audio, and video information that they have developed related to current ecological research and management issues in the parks.

Requires no "network" or "wireless" connection for full functionality. All information, photographs, and maps are integrated into the app itself.

Select a mountain and the app will identify it for you and we’ll tell you which direction to look and how far away it is.

Featuring Canadian Rockies authors Ben Gadd, Chic Scott, and Michael Kerr as well as Parks Canada guides.
