Canadian Rockies – Kootenay Rockies
The TransRockies Classic is held in a very special part of the world. The Canadian Rockies lie along the Continental Divide – the hydrological apex of the continent where snowmelt feeds rivers that flow to the Pacific, Arctic and Atlantic Oceans. Elk, bighorn sheep, wolves and bears inhabit the mountains and forests. A World heritage site, the region is home to four National Parks and features alpine peaks and lakes, icefields, and hot springs. Most of the route also falls into the Kootenay Rockies region in the southeast corner of British Columbia, which is home to over 75 provincial parks. The TransRockies Classic explores some of the most remote areas of the region.
