British Columbia & Canadian Rockies - Alberta (Chapter)
This is the Alberta chapter from Lonely Planet’s British Columbia & the Canadian Rockies guidebook.
Alberta does lakes and mountains like Rome does churches and cathedrals, but without the penance. For proof head west 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.
- 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
