Banff National Park
Trying to describe Alberta is a little like the story of the three blind men describing an elephant – your impression will be wildly different, depending on where you “touch” the province. Traveling with your kids in Alberta, will it be the wide open plains of farm and ranch land or glacier lakes nestled in soaring mountains? Experience the Stampede in Calgary or tromp past amazing displays at the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology? Go skiing in Banff or camping in tipis? Alberta has so much to offer, your family’s memories will be unique.
