Alberta is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places on earth, as vast as it is varied in landscapes and experiences. Situated in the heart of western Canada, Alberta is bordered on the west by the majestic Canadian Rocky Mountains. To the east lie the Canadian Badlands, a wind-eroded moonscape of multi-hued canyons and coulees, home to some of the greatest dinosaur finds in the world.
Our international gateway cities of Edmonton and Calgary offer an unparalleled urban experience – luxury accommodation, fine dining, endless shopping and a vibrant arts and cultural scene. The Rockies and our national parks are only hours away.
A winter adventure in Alberta is also a must in your travel plans. Our legendary, airy powder is revered by skiers and snowboarders worldwide, as are our Canadian Rockies resorts. Dog sledding, northern lights viewing and train travel through Alberta’s winter wonderland are just a few adventures in store. Read reviews of Alberta on TripAdvisor.Plan for a White Christmas in the Rockies this year. Stay in an authentic mountain lodge. Wander the streets of an alpine town swathed in snow, twinkling with festive lights against a backdrop of deep forest and snow-covered peaks. See the sights on a sleigh ride, a mug of hot chocolate in hand.
