A rich heritage
Beyond the glimmering lakes and towering mountain peaks are a host of other treasures. Alberta boasts five World Heritage Sites: Dinosaur Provincial Park, Waterton Glacier International Peace Park, Glacier National Park in Banff, Jasper National Park and Wood Buffalo National Park. A vacation to Alberta has it all.
Take an expedition along Icefields Parkway and come face to face with dramatic mountain vistas and towering walls of ice, head north along the Northern Lights trail to Fort McMurray to view the extraordinary spectacle of dancing lights or visit Heritage Park Historical Village to experience life in Alberta in a bygone era. Try travelling in the tracks of the Dinosaurs and join a dig in Drumheller or why not unravel thousands of years of Aboriginal culture at Glenbow or Royal Alberta Museums. Enjoy a scenic rail journey aboard VIA Rail or Rocky Mountaineer and experience the fabulous sights and landscapes of Alberta!
