The Canadian Prairies roll up to the majestic Rockies and the gateway cities of Calgary and Edmonton, from here you progress west into these spectacular mountains and the National Parks of Banff and Jasper.
Alberta is certainly one of the most beautiful places in North America. Although it’s a vast area, it is varied in landscape and experiences. It is an exceptional vacation destination filled with unique activities, urban charm and cultural jewels.
Located in the heart of western Canada, this province is bordered by the Rocky Mountains to the west and the prairies of Saskatchewan to the east. Banff and Jasper are world-renowned resorts and are both in Alberta. They offer luxurious accommodation, fine dining and in the season, excellent skiing. Touring holidays almost always pass through the Parks in summer.
Alternatively you may take a day trip south and east into the Canadian Badlands and go back millions of years to the age of the dinosaurs. Or venture north into a land of pristine lakes, backcountry lodges and northern lights. While there are many huge cattle ranches in Alberta, guest ranches are not so numerous but then, small is beautiful.
