Motor Coach Canada: Tour & Travel Canada 2017 - 83

Alberta

Regions
Alberta is divided into the following six areas:
* Alberta Central: Spotted with parks and
prairies, the central area of Alberta is home
to several towns and natural areas. Visitors
can explore the Kootenay Plains Ecological
Reserve, a natural grasslands site uncommon
to other Rocky Mountain passes. Lac La Biche
Mission National and Provincial Historic Site
is the oldest standing sawn lumber building
in Alberta. The Fort Normandeau Historic
Site and Interpretive Centre in Red Deer is
a reconstruction of the North-West Mounted
Police Fort built during the Riel Rebellion. With
golf resorts, canyons, lakes and trails, plus the
many other historic sites, festivals and museums, there is plenty to experience.
* Alberta North: Although Alberta's North is
considered one of Canada's most developed
northern regions, that doesn't mean that it
has lost its rugged appeal. Northern Alberta's
grandiose lakes, mighty rivers, abundant
wildlife and untapped wilderness are the
backdrop for an outdoor experience of a
lifetime by horseback, canoe/kayak, jet-boat,
ATV, or simply by foot. Alberta's long summer
days are not only great for adventurers, golfers can always fit in an extra round on one
of Northern Alberta's boreal forest courses.

1-800-756-4351 for more information and a
free guide featuring holiday packages.
* Alberta South: Alberta South is home of
the badlands-Canada's historic footprint
of times and creatures past. Tourists can
visit the United Nations-designated World
Heritage Sites of Dinosaur Provincial Park,
where one of the most extensive collections
of fossil beds in the world can be found, and
the breathtaking Waterton Lakes National
Park. Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump's
Interpretive Centre celebrates aboriginal
hunting techniques used for 6,000 years.
Just as a couple of examples among many,
Lethbridge and Medicine Hat offer art galleries, museums, gardens and parks.
* Canadian Rockies: Positioned at the province's western edge, the Canadian Rockies
are a patchwork of mountains, lakes, towns
and peaceful wilderness. It is here that some
of the province's most beautiful spaces-
Banff and Jasper national parks-are found.
The area also features trails, skiing, golfing, fishing, hiking, museums, historic sites,
guided tours and festivals. Nature lovers
will appreciate sites like Bow Falls in Banff
National Park, the majestic beauty of Lake
Louise, or the awe-inspiring Maligne Canyon
of Jasper National Park.
* Calgary and Area: This urban centre boasts a
460-kilometer pathway system. It also features
one of the top-ranked zoos in the world: the
Calgary Zoo, Botanical Garden and Prehistoric
Park, known for its work in protecting endangered species. Host of the 1988 Winter
Olympic Games, the city's Canada Olympic
Park is a year-round sport and tourist attraction,

offering a host of activities. For those who enjoy
nature, the surrounding area features ranch
land, valleys, parks, historic sites and trails.
* Edmonton: The province's capital,
Edmonton, is known as Canada's Festival
City-but festivals are only the beginning.
Tourists will enjoy the Muttart Conservatory-a
sight unto itself-composed of four glass
pyramids. Inside are botanical treasures and
distinctive climates ranging from desert heat
to the cool of a misty forest. After taking a
stroll through some of the city's many parks,
visitors might want to do some shopping
at West Edmonton Mall, spanning some
48 blocks and featuring a skating rink, water
park, amusement area and more.

ALBERTA

Bordered by the Rocky Mountains to the
west and Montana to the south, Alberta offers
a multitude of experiences for the youthfully
spirited traveler. Familiar in any language, the
Rocky Mountains are unquestionably Alberta's
most well-known natural attraction, but there are
other landscapes and terrains around the province that have earned equal stature. In fact, the
United Nations has designated five of Alberta's
natural wonders as World Heritage Sites. Find
out for yourself how magnificent they are!
Stretching from east of Red Deer in central
Alberta to the Montana border in the south,
the Canadian Badlands is a living history
book going back millennia. It is said the early
French settlers named this lunar-like landscape
"Mauvais Terre" (Bad Land) because of its
inhospitable terrain. But this unique region of
wind-scraped rock formations, cactus-covered
canyons and coulees has revealed an abundance of riches below its surface. One of the
area's ancient fossil beds has yielded up the
largest dinosaur find in the world.
For the city dwellers, Alberta is happy to
accommodate those who love to shop till they
drop. For starters, try North America's largest
mall-48 city blocks-in the heart of Edmonton.
Beyond the mall scene you'll find plenty of specialty stores, art galleries, bookstores, boutiques,
antiques and collectibles, gourmet food and
wine and more.
