Imagine it: a balanced journey across the Canadian Rockies whisking you from soaring peaks to sparkling lakes, from dramatic canyons to awe-inspiring glaciers, from towering skyscrapers to down-to-earth local ranches. This is Alberta. If you’re on the fence about diving into the diverse beauty of this province, consider this blog your inspiration to take the leap and book your next tour to Alberta and western Canada. Here are some of the remarkable places you can see on our tours:

 

Jasper

This alpine town is nestled in the heart of the Canadian Rockies at the gateway to the Icefields Parkway. Whilst here, stop at Jasper National Park and scope out the picture-perfect azure waters of Maligne Lake, the largest natural lake in the Canadian Rockies, and the striking Maligne Canyon. With free time around your hotel, you can also take time to enjoy the local flavours at a nearby restaurant in the evening.

You can visit Jasper on our Canadian Rockies by Train Mountaineer tour.

 

Lake Louise

The famous glacier-fed, turquoise waters of Lake Louise are yours for admiring. Whether you hike along the lakeshore or relax beside the enchanting lake, marvel at views of the Victoria Glacier and the stunning mountain backdrop at the iconic Lake Louise. Travellers on the Canadian Rockies by Train tour will also get a unique perspective of these waters when they spend a night at the world-famous Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise.

Icefields Parkway

Winding along the Continental Divide, the Icefields Parkway is one of Canada’s national treasures and a favourite destination for many travellers. It will take you past waterfalls, rushing rivers, glacial peaks, imposing cliffs, and snowcapped mountains. Be sure you bring your camera. You’ll want to take lots of pictures to capture the incredible sights to share with family and friends back home.

Calgary

This cosmopolitan city has strong western roots and ties to its cattle ranching past. Several of our tours will take you to a ranch about an hour outside the city for a line dance lesson, wagon ride, and traditional Albertan barbecue. For a more in-depth visit to this city, consider a pre- or post- night stay in Calgary so you can take time to explore downtown. Take to the observation deck at Calgary Tower to get a look at everything from the bustling city to the foothills of the Canadian Rockies!
