Kananaskis Weddings & Weddings in the Foothills
The next time you have a lazy night, head out to the movie store and rent “Legends of the Falls.” Pay particular attention to the scenery, because the majority of this movie was filmed on location in Kananaskis (or K-country). Set right at the doorstep of the Canadian Rockies, K-country combines the best of both worlds; fantastic Rocky Mountain views and expansive big sky Alberta. Venues include the world class resort Delta Lodge at Kananaskis (the location of the G8 summit), Boundary Ranch (a very authentic western ranch), and the McDougall Memorial United Church (the cutest little historical chapel with the stunning Rockies as a natural backdrop).
Not lacking in fun, Kananaskis has tons of fantastic hiking, a golf course, horseback riding, white water rafting and heli-tours! If you’re looking to really get away from it all, Kananaskis is the place to have your destination wedding.
The ‘vibe’ of it: K-country is for you if you really dislike large crowds and want to spend all of your time outdoors. It’s certainly not empty, but it’s quiet and removed from any towns. It’s also a great place to see a variety of wildlife.
Distance from Calgary International Airport: 1 hour 20 minutes
Population: 250 (there isn’t actually a town in Kananaskis)
Accommodation types: hotels, ranch, tipis (we kid you not), wilderness hostel, camping
