Alberta's dramatic scenery

Snow-capped peaks and jagged canyons

Those snow-capped peaks and jagged canyons are the making of holidays in Alberta, so make it your mission to find the perfect view.

Try spotting grizzly bears from Lake Louise Gondola on a 14-minute journey ascending over 2,000 metres. Play count the mountains as you head up into the bluest of skies on Banff Gondola; take the Jasper Tramway into the alpine tundra for panoramic views of glaciers, waterfalls, lakes and forests, or float high above it all on a helicopter tour of the Canadian Rockies.   

Self drive the Trans-Canada Highway from Jasper to Icefields Parkway for the drive of a lifetime. Be sure to explore Alberta without your car, hiking or biking along back country trails that offer impressive views of lakes, mountains and glaciers. Discover the Valley of the Ten Peaks, Moraine Lake and the unspoilt beauty of Waterton Lakes National Park.
