Bow Valley, Alberta – Accommodation
One of the best ways to see the Rockies is to get a vehicle, a tent, and go camping! Better yet, rent a truck/camper or a small motorhome and travel in style. Many campgrounds in the area are primitive, but the big ones have full hook-ups, hot showers, evening entertainment (educational / for the whole family), and sometimes free firewood. It’s the best way to see the Northern Lights, smell the mountain air and meet those bears!
