Alberta Vacations and Tours

Soaring mountains, emerald lakes and sprawling prairie vistas punctuate Alberta's vast and beautiful landscape. Dusted with sparkling snow during the winter months and lush greenery in the summer, Alberta is a year-round travel destination.

Take in breathtaking views of the snow-capped Canadian Rockies as you wind through pristine forest passageways aboard the Rocky Mountaineer train. Marvel at picturesque Lake Louise from the grand windows of the iconic Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. See modern-day cowboys challenge the might of horses, bulls and steers during the Calgary Stampede.

There is so much to explore and discover when travelling Alberta. Choose one of the thoughtfully planned vacation packages below or customize an existing trip with your favourite activities.
