Alberta - spectacular mountain scenery and teeming with wildlife

Incorporating some of the most spectacular mountain scenery in Canada and amazing experiences, this province along with British Columbia is home to the Canadian Rockies. For the enthusiast, this province teems with wildlife and there are many opportunities to get up close and personal.

Why choose Alberta?

The main feature of Alberta is uts stunningly beauty with spectacular scenery around every corner.

Combine Alberta with British Columbia and there are some fantastic rail journeys to enjoy: Rocky Mountaineer offers three separate options through the Rockies and Via Rail Canada, the national railway system of Canada, offers two separate journeys, each has their benefits and our staff will be pleased to advise you which fits most appropriately into your proposed trip.

The voyageurs, employed by the Hudson Bay Fur Trading Company, were the first white men to open up this area to early settlement. When they arrived the area was teaming with game, both on the Prairies and on the Plains.

Whilst the Prairie areas have changed to become productive farmland fortunately the formation in 1885 of the Banff National Park has meant that many areas still teem with wildlife including bear, moose, wolf, mountain sheep and mountain goats. Take a look at our Walk on the Wild Side section to help you look for something to meet your requirements.

The foresight, which led to the formation of the national mountain parks of Banff, Jasper and Waterton, means that you are visiting this area and still seeing it in pristine condition.

There are many ways to explore this beautiful region of Canada, stroll along the shore at Lake Louise or take a more strenuous hike up to the Lake Agnes Tea House. If four legs suit you better than two, how about a horseback trail ride through the Rockies? Alternatively, you can enjoy canoeing or kayaking on a tranquil lake or get onto the rivers with a raft or float trip.

Wherever you travel in this area there is much to do. Our staff has travelled the region extensively and can offer first-hand experience of many itineraries, tailored to your individual requirements.
