Rogier Gruys is a hiking & travel expert. He’s hiked in Canada, Sweden, Norway, Yukon, Ghana, West Papua (Indonesia), Mongolia. Rogier spent a lot of time trekking in the Bhutanese Himalayas, and edited a dayhiking guide to Thimphu.
One day browsing our top 10 hiking towns of the world, Rogier noted that we have Banff, Alberta, Canada listed.
In Rogier’s opinion, hiking out of Jasper, Alberta is even better than out of Banff.
Rogier Gruys knows far more about the Canadian Rockies than I ever will. We’ve annotated our top 10 hiking towns list to mention both Jasper and … Canmore, Alberta. Another strong candidate. 🙂
