Alberta, Canada is blessed with so many possibilities … from urban cool in Calgary and Edmonton to pulse-racing adventures in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. The cities are laid-back and contemporary with microbreweries, great festivals and fine dining on Alberta-grown produce. And then there's the event that transforms a city into one giant cowboy party - the Calgary Stampede.
Alternatively, if cities aren't your thing, there's another kind of sky-scraper … the jagged peaks of the Canadian Rockies. These provide a veritable playground for anyone from the most hardened adrenaline junkie to someone who prefers more gentle pursuits. Skiing, hiking, biking, canoeing, horseback riding or even heli-yoga, there's plenty to do when you visit Alberta.
Away from the mountains, head out to the Badlands to dig for dinosaur remains or go north to see the northern lights. Year round, there's always something spectacular to see or do in Alberta ... it's your call in our wild.
