Albertas infinite variety of landscapes provides unforgettable treks to satisfy every hikers wanderlust. Discover high mountain passes, meadows blanketed in flowers, and watch for wildlife you wont find elsewhere. Encounter rushing rivers, remote mountain lakes, and ancient glaciers. Youre walking on top of the world. For an adventure you can brag about, go heli-hiking in the untouched mountains!
Look between your horses ears at the backcountry mountain vista spread before you. The forest trail gives way to a lush meadow, with indigo peaks stretching skyward along the horizon. Breathe in the sweet scent of the evergreens on the fresh alpine breeze. Experience the nature of the land from the saddle, just as the explorers did centuries ago. Release your inner cowboy in Albertas rolling foothills to experience life on a working ranch and join a real cattle drive!
An electrifying jolt courses through you as a trophy fish strikes. Your line sings, vibrating, flying off your reel. Suddenly a blinding flash of sliver explodes through the surface, sparkling in the morning sun. Just when you think it cant get any better than this, you catch a glimpse of your surroundings. The glassy stillness of the lake and the tree-lined shore in the distance unfold under an endless sky. Take a day trip and fish from a boat or right from shore, experience river fishing right in the middle of a city or book a float plane to a remote lake where fish will practically jump into your boat!
Standing on the top of a butte, you line up your drive with extreme care. Both sides of the fairway plunge into the canyon floor below, youre golfing in Albertas ancient badlands, a stones throw away from the remains of the mighty dinosaurs that once ruled this barren land. Teeing off in the badlands is just one of many unforgettable golfing experiences Alberta has in store. Where else can you yell Fore! to the elk in the rough while playing a world-class course among glacial lakes and towering mountains? Long summer evenings mean hitting the links until midnight with more than 200 courses across the province to choose from.
