Alberta Rail Vacations
Dreaming of an Alberta Rail Vacation? Where jagged crags rise against an expansive sky, golden bears lumber along the road and placid, turquoise lakes reflect towering pines.
The landscape here practically defines rugged, especially in the two sprawling national parks on Alberta’s western edge.
In the east, you’ll find windswept prairies where modern-day cowboys still embody the Old West.
Banff and Jasper National Parks boast some of the Rockies’ most pristine scenery, which you can explore on a guided heli-hike above the timberline or on a white-water rafting trip down the Athabasca River.
For a more restful tour, drive past the mirror-like lakes and soaring peaks of the Icefields Parkway or take a narrated boat ride on the glacial-blue waters of Maligne Lake.
In eastern Alberta, hunt for dinosaur bones and fossils in the dusty stones of the Canadian Badlands or visit the chuck wagon races, rodeo and midway of Calgary Stampede.
This is 'the greatest outdoor show on earth' for a reason.
