From majestic mountain ranges to vast swaths of open prairie, ethereal badlands to lush forests, and white water rapids to glass-surface lakes in the deepest shade of blue, the landscape here is defined by the rarest kind of diversity – the sort that fills the senses, ignites a sense of wonder, and beckons you to come out and play.
Day after day, season after glorious season, southern Alberta offers incredible ways to relax, recharge, explore and be entertained. There is plenty to see, lots to learn, and more to experience than anyone could hope to cover in a single visit. You’ll want to plan your time carefully, and the people at Alberta tourism are here to help.
