Travel Alberta

Summer

You clients will explore the Rocky Mountain Parks of Banff and Jasper, party of a massive UNESCO World Heritage Site. Gorgeous vistas and stunning peaks can be viewed from chairlifts, gondolas and a tramway. A hike into a remote alpine pass will open to meadows filled with wild flowers and hidden turquoise lakes. 

Your clients can fly in to a remote lodge in the north for trophy fishing in pristine waters. Maybe they'll chose to head to a working ranch on the southwestern plains, or go on a dinosaur dig in the Canadian Badlands. Along the way, your clients will enjoy sightings of our Canadian wildlife - from moose, to elk, deer, bighorn sheep and mountain goats to black bears and grizzlies.

Encourage your clients to embark on a scenic road trip and explore our rich cultural heritage and spectacular countryside. They can immerse themselves in our First Nations communities. Invite them to sleep in a tipi under the stars of the Milky Way and enjoy guided tours at Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump. 

Edmonton and Calgary offer a consummate urban experience - fine dining, endless shopping and a vibrant arts and culture scene. Our love of the outdoors is equalled only by our love of a good gathering, which means plenty of outdoor festivals and special events throughout the summer.
