The Kananaskis area is home to some of the most incredible scenery on the outskirts of the Rockies in Banff National Park. While majority of people tend to miss this area and skip over it right through to Banff, you will find that the Kananaskis region is popular with the locals and well worth stopping in for a couple of days and chilling out.

To get to Kananaskis you will need a car, as the Greyhound bus will not deliver you close enough to the hostels here as you will need to leave the main highway. This is also the best way to investigate the area as well. You can get here by following the main highway that runs between Calgary and Banff. The region is approximately seventy-five kilometres from Calgary and you can follow the signs off the highway.

During the summer you can get involved with hiking, canoeing, abseiling, rock climbing, and all other kinds of outdoor activities you can possibly imagine. Some of the hikes are quite challenging, but have stunning views over the valley that are well worth the grueling hikes up. During the winter, this wonderland doesn't shut down, with skiing, both downhill and cross country and ice climbing available in Kananaskis. Close to here you can also arrange to go dog sledding -- just ask at your Kananaskis hostel how to do so.

The hostels in Kananaskis are quite remote and in the middle of the mountains. You will need to arrange your food and anything else that you might need during your stay here before you arrive, or ask at your hostel for the directions to the nearest supermarket or town centre. Otherwise, get outside, get among some of the most amazing mountains in the world, and enjoy your time in Kananaskis Village.
