A region of spectacular beauty awaits you in Canada's western province of Alberta. This fantastic region offers Wild West style scenery, accentuated by jagged mountains, forest filled hillsides, large lakes and some beautiful national parks. Take a trip to Alberta's main tourist attraction, Alberta's Rockies, a view dominated by snow-coated peaks, luminous glaciers, and iridescent glacier lakes.
Alberta receives more days of sunshine than any other province in Canada, no matter what the season and the climate has been known to be called a 'continental' climate, due its long cold winters and mild to hot summers.
The summer month of July is a favourite amongst tourists and locals alike to travel to the major cities, the locals love to celebrate their grassroots each year in the famous Calgary Stampede, an exuberant ten-day festival of all things Western, whilst the capital city of Edmonton offers The Klondike Days Festival, which attracts 250,000 visitors each July for 10 days, displaying many attractions, show-stopping entertainment and exotic, thrilling features.
