Canada - Alberta (Chapter)
This is the Alberta chapter from Lonely Planet’s Canada guidebook.
Alberta is home to Jasper and Banff, two of the world’s oldest national parks which, despite their wild and rugged terrain, remain well-trammeled and easily accessible. Edmonton’s fringe theater festival is the world’s second largest, while Calgary’s July ‘Stampede’ is as unapologetically ostentatious as the city that hosts it.
- explore the Jurassic remnants of Drumheller and call into the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology
- make fresh tracks on a cross-country skiing trail in Jasper National Park
- attend the Edmonton International Fringe Festival and unlock the more bohemian side of the Albertan capital
- restaurants & accommodation
