Kananaskis Insider Tips

Go underground
Get your explorer's (hard) hat on and head down into one of Canmore & Kananaskis Country's cave systems. Experienced guides will lead you through twisting passageways etched over hundreds of thousands of years. You'll make your way through a maze of fascinating caverns and chambers, mineral formations and ancient fossils on this atmospheric adventure.
When to go
Timing your arrival to coincide with seasonal variation is always best practice in Alberta as from spotting migratory geese in flight to catching the colourful tree foliage of autumn, there's plenty of reasons to visit Kananaskis every month of the year. Visit in either early September or early June and you'll be treated to plenty of blue sky days as well as sparsely populated campsites and hiking trails.
