Alberta's grandeur and beauty are obvious from the moment of arrival. Rolling foothills, intimidating mountains and prehistoric hoodoos are a few of Alberta's more distinct natural landmarks. Most impressive are Alberta's Rocky Mountains, which facilitate the world famous resort towns of Banff, Jasper, Canmore, Kananaskis, Lake Louise and Waterton. Dinosaur hunters flock to Drumheller, home of the acclaimed Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology, where the desert topography yields countless fossils and prehistoric discoveries. Alberta's rural heritage can be further explored with a visit to the vast farmlands of Alberta's Heartland, Southern Alberta and Northern Alberta. Calgary, home of the globally recognized Calgary Stampede, is best known for its warm hospitality, endless skies and close proximity to the Rockies.
Impressive diverse landscapes, from the beauty of Vancouver Island up to the impressive Canadian Rockies. British Columbia is blessed with its breathtaking mountain lakes, its geographical diversity and the overwhelming flora and fauna you will find in these areas. British Columbia is popular for its hiking, camping, rock climbing, mountaineering, hunting and fishing. There are still many rainforest parks with ancient trees (up to 2000 years old). British Columbia is also a place great for outdoor adventure: from hiking, mountain biking, skiing, golfing, fishing, swimming, kayaking, whale watching, diving up to wine tasting and dining. British Columbia's capital is Victoria, located at the south-eastern tip of Vancouver Island. The Coast Mountains are known for British Columbia's spectacular scenery along a beautiful coastline with sunny beaches. Most remarkable is the diversity in natural scenery going from Vancouver Island towards the Rockies.
