Traipsing by foot or by horse around this phenomenal landscape there is a rush of grandness that is almost indescribable. Pure air on the top of the world, bright white mountain peaks and then the enormous Mt. Robson itself standing majestically, towering the rest.

However, if typically you are not an athletic Zeus seeking the big challenges, why not go by helicopter to get a birds eye view few ever see? Other visitors enjoy the birdwatching, field meadows, lakes, and rivers that surround the lower landscape. Kayaking or canoeing the somber lakes with the tranquil sounds of nature and light whispering wind are spellbinding.

Visitors will find helpful supplies at the seasonal grocery shop and gas station on the western entry, which run the mid-year summer months. Plus visitors can gather directions, registration, and guide information at the Mount Robson's visitors information center.
