Welcome to Rocky Mountain House!

Amid translucent lakes, lush forests, seemingly untouched wilderness and majestic mountains, Rocky Mountain House epitomizes the meaning of tranquil. From Calgary, Rocky Mountain House is a scenic 215-km (133-mi), or two-and-a-half hour drive northwest. Located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, varied terrain and brilliant surroundings attracts a myriad of recreational opportunities, including white water rafting, trail riding, canoeing and unsurpassed fishing. Rocky Mountain House is situated on the shores of the mighty North Saskatchewan River, and in the early 1800's was an important trading post in the fiercely competitive fur market. The town's most famous resident was none other than David Thompson, the successful explorer and geographer who mapped and forged passage through the treacherously beautiful Rocky Mountains. With endless possibilities—whether it be tracing the pristine wilderness atop skis, or tracing the area's rich history at the Rocky Mountain House National Historic Site—the only real problem with visiting Rocky Mountain House is leaving.
