With spring now here, many people will be heading outdoors to take hikes all throughout the beautiful terrain of Canada. At Along River Ridge Bed & Breakfast, we are quite fortunate when it comes to enjoying the great outdoors, and conveniently located near two excellent hiking areas that have a lot to offer locals and tourists.

Banff National ParkBanff National Park

The Banff National Park area covers more 6,641 square kilometers (2,564 square miles if you’re from the States) and is Canada’s first national park. Its wide variety of terrain features valleys, mountains, glaciers and rivers make it a must-hike if you are planning vacationing Calgary. Another great perk is that even if you’re new to hiking, the park offers hikes for all different experience levels, allowing everyone to take part in what the area has to offer.

Lake Louise

Referred to as the “Diamond in the Wilderness” and the “Hiking Capital of Canada,” Lake Louise offers a ton of great sightseeing opportunities. If hiking isn’t your style but you still want to see what this area has to offer, it also offers one of North America’s best downhill skiing areas to enjoy during the winter months. Much like Banff National Park, Lake Louise also offers a diversity of terrain that contains glaciers and some beautiful mountains.

Of course, after a long day of hiking, you’re going to need somewhere to rest your head. Along River Ridge B&B has numerous rooms available that would be a perfect place to relax in between hikes or to catch some sleep to get you ready for whatever your next day might hold. You don’t want to tackle a day of hiking and adventure on an empty stomach either, and our delicious breakfasts will give you what you need to make your hike an enjoyable one.

Along River Ridge B&B offers beautiful, comfortable lodgings in Calgary, Alberta, giving guests a great place to rest and head out to the trails, slopes or enjoy any other activity. Our rooms offer the perfect rest no matter what kind of vacation you’re on. If you would like more information or to make reservations, give us a call today at 888-434-9555!
