ALBERTA CANADA

From the endless golden plains of the prairies, to glacier-fed turquoise lakes nestled in the epic foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Alberta’s welcoming landscape overflows with mind-blowing adventures and some of the most astounding vistas known to humankind. Immerse yourself in the serenity of charming towns surrounded by colossal snow-capped peaks, or saddle up and experience first-hand the authenticity of the cowboy way of life amidst quaint ranches of Canada’s “Wild West”.

Go where the wild things are — from the mountainous paradise that is Banff National Park, to the geological wonders of Waterton Lake National Park — spotting moose, bison, bear and wolves as well as herds of elk, bighorn sheep and mountain goats that are a common year round treat. Lay back and relax as you cast your line along crystal clear mountain streams, or opt for a heart-pounding encounter with hard-fighting trophy, brown and rainbow trout, on the world-renowned waters of Bow River.

Trek your way through the enigmatic trails of the Canadian Badlands and encounter ancient hoodoo rock formations. Imagine life seventy-five million years ago while you explore the unearthly landscapes of Dinosaur National Park. Feel the Rocky Mountain high under clear winter skies as you gratify your need for speed on seemingly endless snowmobiling trails. Glide along freshly powdered backcountry snow plains, or journey into the adrenaline soaked world of downhill skiing.

No matter the destination, Alberta most definitely rewards the adventurous. Let the BRMB Navigator guide you as you explore this spectacular adventure playground.
