kananaskis country Tricky to Say, Tough to Spell, but Impossible not to Love.

Put it on Your List

Kananaskis Country, or K-Country if you prefer, is one of those special places that really needs to be on your "must do" list because it has something to offer just about anyone. At under an hour's drive from Calgary or Banff, and at over 4,200 km² in size, this gem is easily accessible and has plenty of space to enjoy a multitude of activities, experience nature at its finest and even sample fine dining in a stunning setting. And while it boasts the same world-class scenery and wildlife viewing opportunities as its National Park neighbours, it does so without all of the crowds. Sounds pretty great already right?

Kananaskis Country is a multi-use recreation area made up of 39 Provincial Recreation Areas, 6 Provincial Parks, 4 Wildland Provincial Parks, 1 Ecological Reserve, and 1 Natural Area
