Self Drive Alberta

Explore picturesque lakes and mountains

Take a trip you’ll never forget as you journey through thriving cities, glacier-fed lakes, stunning resorts, towering mountains and dramatic landscapes in Canada’s Alberta province.

Take in the sights of cowboy city Calgary, relax in the mountain resorts of Banff and Jasper, stroll along the emerald waters of Lake Louise, spot bears, elk and eagles in Banff and Jasper’s National Parks and journey along the famous Icefields Parkway - frequently voted one of the world's most scenic drives. You can even venture further into Alberta’s incredible Prairies and spend time on a real working ranch or perhaps cross the provincial border into British Columbia for more incredible sights and wildlife – the choice is yours.

Self drive holidays allow you the freedom and flexibility to really explore at your own pace and to take control of your own epic adventure. Alberta is perfect for self-exploration, with the mountain roads being easily drivable, as well as breath taking, whether you decide to travel by car, motorhome or even motorbike.
