Home to two of the world's oldest national parks, Alberta draws millions of visitors with its scenic landscapes ideal for skiing, hiking, and camping. Few leave this western Canadian province without a visit to Lake Louise, arguably the biggest attraction in Alberta. The pristine area around this glacial body of water offers some of the world's finest trails for mountain biking and horseback riding, while a nearby ski resort provides runs for alpine and cross-country skiing, snowboarding, and heli-skiing. If you get sated of all those picture-perfect natural landscapes, add Calgary or Edmonton to your Alberta trip itinerary. Both offer good tourist infrastructure and host renowned festivals, celebrating everything from the country's ranching culture to folk music.
