Set against a dramatic vista of mountain ranges, ‘K-Country’ is less than an hour’s drive southwest of Calgary making it the ultimate city escape. As the gateway to Peter Lougheed Provincial Park, it’s a popular spot with outdoor enthusiasts who tackle its hiking trails, paddle on Upper Kananaskis Lake, or cycle in from Longview as part of the challenging Highwood Pass.
On a sunny summer day, Forget-Me-Not Pond is the perfect place for a family picnic thanks to its calm waters which make for the perfect place to float, and Rawson Lake is a fabulous hike for all skill levels with gorgeous views.
Winter is also a special time in Kananaskis, when cross-country skiers hit the snow-covered trails, and the Nakiska Ski area welcomes guests to zip down one of its 79 runs or play in the tube park. No matter what season it is, the Delta Hotels by Marriott Kananaskis is always a crowd-pleaser for an overnight stay, boasting a huge pool, outdoor skating rink, spa, five restaurants and stylish rooms.
