The beauty and magnificence of the Canadian Rockies can’t be put into words. This mountainous terrain is to be experienced and enjoyed…that’s it! The spellbinding scenery, gorgeous forests, majestic waterfalls and amazing wildlife take everyone by surprise. Also, many recreational activities and extreme adventures are held here. The Canadian Rockies is definitely a great destination for thrill seekers.
In Golden- British Colombia, you can take off from atop a cliff. The views of the rocky landscape, two rivers and the vast blue sky are absolutely stunning. ‘Mount 7’ of the Golden has even played host to the National Paragliding Championships in the past. Most of the adventurers opt for paragliding because it gives them an opportunity to fly without a motorised engine and feel like a bird in the sky.
Mountain Biking is a popular sport here. Many of the trails run through remote areas offering jaw-dropping sights. Participants must carry a repair kit and medical kit for emergencies. They can even face varied weather conditions. July and August are considered to be the warmest and the best months for mountain biking. Riders need to be careful as many hikers and horses will be sharing the trails with them.
