Alberta Holidays

Reference CTS9528

Our choice of Alberta holidays is proving to be a popular choice when it comes to exploring Canada. It's a Western province but also one of the most populous provinces with over 4 million people living there. This ranks the province as being the fourth most populated across Canada and the most populated out of any of the Prairie Provinces. Located closely to British Columbia and rich with industry Alberta is a popular place to live with excellent opportunities for investment.

When many think of Alberta there often quick to think of oil. This is because Alberta is probably best known for its oil sands. Alberta is one of the primary sources for Canada's crude oil and northern resource industries and as a result, there is a huge working population in this province.

Alberta is also well known for its tourism with several large metropolitan areas that include Calgary and Edmonton, several other notable tourist destinations include Banff, Drumheller, Sylvan Lake and Jasper to name a few.

Alberta is definitely a province that has many stark contrasts in its landscapes. By visiting this province you can enjoy beautiful mountain lakes as well as rolling foothills, farmland, Prairie, Badlands and more. You can spend time in large metropolitan areas as well as enjoy getting away from it all in areas like dinosaur provincial Park where some the world's most exquisite dinosaur finds have come from.

As well as drastic changes in landscape there is also drastic changes in weather. Because Alberta extends over 1200 km from its North to South average temperatures can change drastically depending on the terrain and conditions. In the Southwest average temperatures in the coldest months usually, hover around 0°C whereas in the far north these temperature averages sit at around -24°C. This is an extremely stark contrast and something that you need to be prepared for if you plan on travelling north. Temperature changes can also occur more rapidly in mountainous regions throughout Alberta.
