Rocky Mountain Route

The Rocky Mountain Route from Alberta to Alaska offers visitors a stretch of one of the world’s most beautiful and protected wild areas. Drivers can expect jaw-dropping scenery, wildlife sightings galore, historic communities that hold proudly to their frontier character and frequent examples of the ingenuity, creativity and humor of those clever enough to make a life in the north. The route follows an extension of the Rocky Mountains. Along the way, stops include everything from world-renowned parks like Banff and Kenai Fjords to quirky towns and traces of the region’s colorful history. The natural wealth of this region led to its protection in a series of national, provincial and state parks that line the route.

      Planning Tip

      Do you have any information on Canadian/US conversions?

      In Canada fuel is sold by liters using Canadian currency. To calculate your cost per gallon, multiply the price per liter by 3.785 then adjust for the exchange rate. Alaska is in a different time zone and is one hour earlier than British Columbia and the Yukon and two hours earlier than Alberta.

      Quick Conversion Guide

      • 1 liter (CDN) = 0.2643 gallons (U.S.)
      • 1 gallon (U.S.) = 3.785 liters (CDN)
      • 1 kilometer (CDN) = 0.6214 miles (U.S.)
