Alberta

Dig for dinosaur fossils, marvel at the northern lights and shop for hours at North America’s largest shopping mall in this Canadian province. Alberta, one of Canada’s western provinces, encompasses a diverse assortment of bustling cities, quiet towns and vast swaths of remote wilderness. Witness the northern lights, explore the many stores in North America’s largest shopping mall and learn all about the dinosaurs that roamed the region.  

Visit the capital city of Edmonton to walk through the gorgeous grounds of the Alberta Legislature and learn about the history of Alberta’s fur trade in Fort Edmonton Park. Attend a show at the Citadel Theatre, followed by an evening out to discover Edmonton’s thriving night life. Shopaholics will want to schedule in a trip to West Edmonton Mall, the largest mall in North America.

In the cosmopolitan city of Calgary, opportunities for daytrips to the local prairies and mountains abound. In the city, head downtown to the Glenbow Museum to examine exhibits on Alberta’s founders and enjoy amusement park thrills at Stampede Park. Families will love the Calgary Corn Maze, a child-friendly attraction that also features mini golf and a petting zoo.

East of Calgary is Drumheller, a dinosaur-obsessed town in the so-called “Canadian Badlands.” Explore Dinosaur Provincial Park, an archeological site known for its fossil fields. The Royal Tyrrell Museum is another popular dinosaur-themed attraction, featuring a range of public programs including fossil casting and seasonal digs.

For outdoor adventures, head to Fort McMurray, an area of northern Alberta. Cast a line at prominent fishing locations to find your catch of the day and explore the walking and cycling trails in Gregoire Lake Provincial Park. From late September to early May, look for the northern lights shimmering over Athabasca River.

Fly into Calgary or Edmonton airports to start your vacation in this action-packed region. Renting a car will give you the most freedom, but a comprehensive bus system also makes it easy to use public transportation, particularly in the major cities. For total relaxation and inspiring scenery, board a luxury train for a journey through the mountains.  

Explore thriving cities, quirky attractions and vast nature parks in this stunning Canadian province.
