The Best of Canada in Alberta

Canada is, putting it simply, vast and spectacular. Home to the iconic Rockies, roaming grizzly bears, cosmopolitan cities and spanning 9,984,670 km² (yes, it's huge) we can't blame you for thinking you need to dedicate weeks upon weeks of your free time to explore the country. However, what if we were to tell you that you can enjoy some of Canada's most iconic landscapes, wildlife and experiences all in one province? Well, it's true. You can. And that province is Alberta; our new favourite destination for capturing the quintessence of a Canadian summer. Located in the heart of western Canada, enveloped in the Canadian Rockies, Alberta offers spectacular alpine landscapes, stunning wildlife, a bustling city and five national parks to explore. So, here are a few of our favourite Canadian summer highlights, all of which can be best enjoyed in Alberta. From national parks to inspiring wildlife; here's a taste of Alberta - Canada's adventure playground.
