Why Alberta?

Arguably one of the most beautiful provinces in Canada, Alberta is home to the world's oldest national parks, cloud-kissed mountains, aquamarine lakes, multi-cultural cities and glaciers that will have you feeling like you've stepped foot into your very own snowglobe!

This prairie province never fails to amaze no matter what time of year you visit. Don a life-jacket and meander through the turquoise crevices of the Rockies in Summer, or grab a set of skates and glide on the frozen surface of that very same lake in Winter. Even the toughest of critics can't deny that the incomparable national parks transform into a playground for outdoor lovers all year round.
