Alberta holidays

Mountainous Banff and Jasper National Parks, cowboy culture in the eastern plains and fossils in the Badlands on an Alberta tour

In Alberta, jagged crags rise against an expansive sky, golden-furred bears lumber alongside the road and placid, turquoise lakes reflect towering pines. The landscape here practically defines rugged, especially in the two sprawling national parks on Alberta’s western edge. In the east, you’ll find windswept prairies where modern-day cowboys still embody the Old West. The pioneering spirit of Canada thrives in Alberta’s peaks and plains, and our specialists have explored the region so we can plan your holiday to Alberta around your interests.

Banff and Jasper National Parks boast some of the Rockies’ most pristine scenery, which you can explore on a guided heli-hike above the timberline or a white-water rafting trip down the icy Athabasca River. For a more restful tour, drive past the mirror-like lakes and soaring peaks that line the Icefields Parkway or take a narrated boat ride on the glacial sky-blue waters of Maligne Lake. Farther south at Waterton Lakes National Park, the mountains are just as impressive but much quieter. In eastern Alberta, hunt for dinosaur footprints in the dusty stones of the Alberta Badlands or visit the Calgary Stampede, where each July you can watch rodeos and chuckwagon races.
