Travel Alberta

Extend Your Summer Stay in Alberta

Spend our long summer days camping, horseback riding, canoeing, cycling, golfing and whitewater rafting. Explore Banff and Jasper national parks where a heli-hike into a secluded mountain pass may yield sightings of moose, black bear and bighorn sheep. Fly in to a remote lodge in the north for trophy fishing in pristine waters. Head to a working ranch in the southwest and saddle up on a real cattle drive. Go on an authentic dinosaur dig in the Canadian Badlands. Take a scenic road trip and explore our rich cultural heritage, distinctive small towns and spectacular countryside.
