Alberta, Canada


The ever-present wind in Alberta blows through the mountains in the west, past Banff's Lake Moraine, tousling the wheat on the open prairie, crossing the industrial pits of the oil sands before swirling over the ancient dinosaur bones in the arid grasslands of the southeast. The varied landscapes give outdoors enthusiasts plenty of options to explore, while the urban areas offer a surprising number of world-class festivals. From screaming yourself hoarse the Calgary Stampede rodeo to snowshoeing to Banff's Lake Agnes Teahouse, the articles below offer some good starting points to begin exploring this vast province.
