Alberta North

Cuddle up next to the other star gazers in your party and blow snow rings into the frosty night air. Ah yes, there's one.  No, that's two explosions, you see. Everyone is spellbound as that taut, black Alberta sky bends and stretches with strings of colour that dance across the largest screen you'll ever find. Gold, red, purple, green- the entire night sky glows with the mesmerizing brilliance of pulsing light. Think of yourself at Mother Nature's drive-in movie theatre...that's what a Northern Lights blockbuster looks like.  Except that you'll likely get hot chocolate instead of popcorn and your guides will come with telescopes, binoculars, extra toques and loads of local lore. Wild, electrifying, otherworldly, these lights in Alberta's northern skies will dazzle you with one of nature's most glorious performances.

Alberta South

Leave the arid, lunar-like landscape of today's Canadian Badlands and tiptoe back 75 million years to the land of dinosaurs once roamed.  Time travel is what you get on a hike or an archaeological dig organized by the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology, Drumheller- home to more dinosaur skeletons that anywhere else on this planet.  However unlikely it seems, guides will convince you that today's swirl of canyons, coulees and hoodoos was once a lush tropical Eden for dinosaurs, crocodiles, sharks and turtles.  Sit on the lip of horseshoe Canyon today and marvel a the history of this place- it's all laid out for you in stripes of bedrock, reminding us of the last ice age that ended some 13,000 years ago. While you can hike independently through some of the badlands your appreciation for fossils, the ways of the dinosaurs and these peculiar land formations will only be heightened by a guide on a day dig or week-long field experience.

Edmonton & Area

You weigh you options carefully.  Swim with sea lions.  Bungy jump over the world's largest indoor wave pool.  Watch hockey under a glass dome. Play a round of mini-golf.  Barrel down a 14-storey,triple-loop roller coaster.  They all sound like a gas.

And that’s before you discover there are 800 stores and services, 19 movie theatres, a casino and a colony of African penguins at West Edmonton Mall (WEM).  And now you can ride on a nifty battery-operated Segway.  In a flash, you're weaving and bobbing between the throngs of faces trying to decide where to start.  Out of the corner of your eye you spy someone with a set of chopsticks, tucking into Pad Thai,  That's where you  begin- at the food court- but even that is staggering with more then 100 eateries all under one roof.  Sometimes you just have to indulge every urban need and there is no better place than at WEM.  Would you expect anything less from the world's largest shopping and amusement complex?

Alberta Central

We're not suggesting you paddle the 66-day voyageur route from Rocky Mountain House to Old Fort William that David Thompson did some 200 years ago- but you woudln't be the first! Canoeing in these parts is still an ideal way to see cast stretches of untramelled wilderness. Independent paddlers can canoe many stretches of the  North Saskatchewan River (nordegg to Rocky Mountain House is very popular) or you can join a voyageur canoe outfitter for a multi-day paddle on this historic waterway.  When you're in the bow of your boat and round the leafy corner of the river to see the peak of the fort, known as Rocky Mountain House , it's an emotional moment for it's a sight you now hasn't shifted much since the days of Thompson. Bue sure to stop in at the newly renovated 2.9 million interpretive centre for a cup of lavender tea, some metis fiddling, jigging and learn the ways of some of our First Nations people- just as Thompson, Canada's ultimate mapmaker-did.

Calgary & Area

It's early July and the Calgary Stampede has revamped our streets with hay bales, wooden fences and free pancake breakfasts.  After you scarf that freebie down, you'll realize you've got to look the part so hustle off to Alberta Boot for the right footwear, Smithbilt for a hat and Lammle's for some western duds.  Now that you're geared up, swagger down to the Stampede Grounds, nab some rodeo tickets and join a "chute tour."

Cap off the day with a feast of prime Alberta beef in a suite at the Lazy S club or join the masses for Beef on a Bun on the midway.  Then it's back to the stands for the-NO.1 crowd-pleaser, the chuckwagon races, and fireworks that end every stampede evening with a literal bang.  Still want more of our western ways? Join the cowboys headin' to Ranchman's and two-step till the cows come home.
