Wild Rose Country is an incredible place and there’s nothing like the Rocky Mountains – especially when the weather cooperates.

Hoping to hit the dusty trail, go for a paddle, have a picnic, or birdwatch this summer? You’re in luck because Kananaskis Country in Alberta will be FREE to visit on select days this season.

Due to the park’s popularity, adventure seekers are usually required to purchase a Kananaskis Conservation Pass for $15 a day or $90 a year – but there are a few exceptions.

According to their website, you can now explore without having to pay, as long as you visit on the first Wednesday of every month. 

Aptly named “Wilderness Wednesdays,” the park will temporarily waive admission fees in hopes of getting as many people out and about.

Can’t check them out on a weekday?
