What we're about
Few destinations can boast the accessibility, variety and sheer grandeur of the Canadian Rockies! Home to no fewer than seven parks, the Canadian Rockies offer some of the most stunning hiking in North America complete with immense, snow-capped peaks, seemingly endless forests, rivers and vibrantly colored lakes.
The Canadian Rockies Adventures Group (CRAG) is a membership only based group dedicated to spending as much time outside as possible with like-minded, fun individuals!
If you enjoy hiking, camping, canoeing, kayaking, backpacking, scrambling, caving, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, climbing and many out activities and you have a keen sense of fun ... this could be the group for you!
Many of our activities will be moderate/intermediate level (there are many other excellent clubs out there for those who are beginners or who prefer a slow pace), with the focus being on trips to the Canadian Rockies or similar and the emphasis is always on safety and fun.
