A sneak peak onto the Bow River in Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada.
The Bow River starts in the Rocky Mountains and winds 587km along the Alberta foothills flowing through Banff National Park. The emerald colour of the water comes from rock flour that is carried into Lake Louise from glacial melt water, this is then drained through the 3km Lake Louise creek into the Bow River.
The perfect way to relax on this river is by taking part in a true Canadian tradition- Canoeing. Canoes are for hire all throughout the summer season and prove a great respite from every day woes. The gentle water provides a relaxing atmosphere to paddle away your worries and marvel at the majestic landscape the Rocky Mountains have to offer. A bit of wildlife spotting should not be missed as Banff National park is location to a variety of beautiful animals, a great opportunity to spot the illusive Moose.
