National Geographic’s Canadian Rockies Destination Map strikes the perfect balance between map and guidebook and is an ideal resource for touring this culturally and geographically unique region. Canada’s share of the Rocky Moutains averages approximately 100 miles across (160 kilometers) and runs from Waterton Lakes National Park on the Alberta-Montana border northwest towards the Yukon territory. Some of the extra features include:
- Charts detailing visitor centers and nearby state parks
- Colorful photographs featuring the region’s enchanting landscape
- History, leaf viewing, wildflowers, wildlife, and places to visit
- Descriptive content highlighting outdoor recreation opportunities, water recreation, camping, hiking, and the Appalachian Trail
Every Destination Map is printed on durable synthetic paper, making them waterproof, tear-resistant and tough — capable of withstanding the rigors of any kind of travel. We love technology and enjoy the convenience of GPS, but you can’t plan a trip on a phone screen and navigation doesn’t work where there’s no cell signal. Start your next trip on the right foot with a high-quality folding travel map. Make the most of your next adventure, even if you lose GPS or cell signals. You’ll always be on the correct route with our folding travel maps. Your adventure starts here!
