All of my valley views were from the roadway as I drove through, and I've added a return visit because the formations are so unusual. Other places to include in your itinerary: Bar U Ranch, Canmore

We actually stayed at the Delta Marriott Hotel in Kananaskis Valley, but if you are staying in Canmore or Banff, this is a drive you need to take. Beautiful snow-capped mountains (in June), beautiful rivers, and just unbelievable sights.

Very easy accessible Trails short distance from Calgary. Great day hikes or multi day Trails. Kananaski village has a store on the right just of the parking lot. In high season it's recommend to book spots ahead.
