Holidays in Alberta, Canada, offer a wonderfully diverse array of things to do and see.
From discovering breathtaking natural wonders to becoming immersed in Canadian cowboy culture, this alluring province certainly isn't short on unique experiences. Alberta shares its most iconic mountain range, the Canadian Rockies, with neighbouring British Columbia. Home to wonderfully photogenic destinations such as the Athabasca Glacier and Lake Louise, the region provides some of North America's best natural scenery. In Banff National Park visitors can ascend Sulphur Mountain in a cable car, while Yoho National Park provides the chance to see the dramatic Takakkaw Falls.
Elsewhere, Jasper National Park, which is travelled through on our Rocky Mountaineer tour, is a great spot for some aurora viewing in the clear night sky or to ride the wonderfully scenic sky tram. Away from the province's natural landmarks, the cosmopolitan city of Calgary offers museums, trendy bars and cowboy culture at the annual Calgary Stampede, while the capital of Edmonton has an art scene to get excited about. Whether you're considering an Alberta icefields tour along the extraordinary Icefields Parkway or spotting wildlife in Elk Island National Park, this glorious province is sure to delight.
Alberta is home to a fantastic array of locally-sources produce
From game such as bison and caribou to superb seafood and cheese, this wild region is no stranger to delicious dishes. Braver diners may like to try prairie oysters; not a seafood delicacy as the name suggests, but rather bull testicles.
Refuel after your national park or northern lights tour with a Kubie burger. This regional specialty is made using garlic sausage meat served in a bun with fried onions, cheese spread or bacon sauerkraut.
Want to unwind with a local beverage after your Alberta tours? Look out for the Angry Canadian. Similar to an Old Fashioned, this cocktail is made with whiskey, bitters, maple syrup and soda, and was invented in Calgary.
