A tour of some popular spots in the Canadian Rockies, chief among them are Banff National Park in the Province of Alberta and Yoho National Park in the Province of British Columbia.

Filmed in June 2011.

The main featured spots in the video are:

Town of Banff and surrounding area, Lake Louise, Town of Golden and surrounding area, Johnston Canyon etc…

The Town of Banff was the first municipality to incorporate within a Canadian national park. It is a resort town and one of Canada's most popular tourist destinations, known for its mountainous surroundings and hot springs. It is a destination for outdoor sports and features extensive hiking, biking, scrambling and skiing.

Lake Louise is a glacial lake within Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada. Fairmont's Chateau Lake Louise, one of Canada's grand railway hotels, is located on Lake Louise's eastern shore. It is a luxury resort hotel built in the early decades of the 20th century by the Canadian Pacific Railway.

Johnston Creek is a tributary of the Bow River in Canada's Rocky Mountains. The creek is located in Banff National Park. A popular hiking trail follows the canyon and leads to a meadow within the Johnston Valley above the canyon. The first part of the trail consists of a constructed walkway with safety rails and bridges, while the last part of the trail is natural and more rugged. Within the meadow are the Ink Pots, which are six blue-green spring-fed pools. Ice climbing is a popular activity on the frozen waterfalls in winter.

I've had a great time visiting Northern Lights Wildlife Wolf Centre in the vicinity of the town of Golden. This wolf sanctuary and it's instructors, armed with their wealth of knowledge, give the centres' visitors a true depiction of these majestic and reclusive creatures.

I've also had the pleasure of spending the night at the Mount 7 Lodges near golden BC. The hosts were splendid as well as the accomodation. The views…spectacular!

Unfortunately, the weather during the time of the shoot was less than perfect with extended periods of cloudiness and rain. However, even under those conditions, a visit is highly recommended!

    Nice video, but horizons are slanted and there’s so much more to the
    Canadian Rockies than Lake Louise and Johnston Canyon and horse fields in
    Golden. Gives a limited overview though that most people not from this area
    wouldn’t have seen.

    It is very happy to see the nature as it is at its peak. The modern
    industrialization should be withdrawn from nature.
