Enjoy some of Canada’s finest wildlife spotting on a holiday in Alberta
Named for the daughter of Queen Victoria, Canada’s fourth-largest province certainly has a rich pedigree and, as our Alberta holidays prove, it’s one that can be enjoyed at any time of year.
This vast portion of western Canada is made up of several different climatic zones. You’ll find forests in its northern reaches, prairie in the south and the jagged Rocky Mountains running along its southwestern border. And, what’s more, there are some 600 lakes dotted around to enjoy too. Each habitat plays host to a variety of spectacular wildlife – buffalo roam the prairies, moose and white-tail deer meander through the forest, and in the foothills of the Rockies grizzly and black bears can often be observed searching for berries. Your professional local guides can take you deep into nature for uninterrupted views of Alberta’s stunning scenery and animals.
Alberta’s cities are, perhaps, best seen during the summer months. Edmonton has a well-earned reputation for its many exciting festivals celebrating everything from food to music and art, while Calgary’s July rodeo extravaganza, ‘The Stampede’ is often a highlight for our clients.
During the winter, temperatures drop below freezing but it’s still a great time for an Alberta holiday when you have world-class skiing, snowshoeing and dog-sledding adventures on your doorstep, not to mention superb opportunities to watch the incredible aurora borealis illuminating the night sky.
