Things to do on in Alberta, Canada

When it comes to things to do in Alberta, Canada, it is usually the skiing which comes top of the bill. Self catering Alberta houses are the dream of many skiers from around the world hoping to tackle the globally renowned slopes of ski resorts including Banff, Canmore and Lake Louise. The skiing and snowboarding available from homes in Alberta, Canada, needs little introduction to the global skiing world, as images of the pistes are sent around the world every year in association with the world championship races which take to the slopes of the Canadian Rockies. Downhill skiing and snowboarding thrives on Alberta holidays, and the level of coaching for any level of skier is exemplary.

There are a huge number of attractions in Alberta too. The famous dinosaur discoveries of south east Alberta are now world famous, and the whole area is well worth exploring for its fascinating mix of pre-historic discoveries and almost lunar landscape.

In the summer, hikers and bikers flock to self catering Alberta homes in Canmore for the excellent mountains trails.

Set against a backdrop of awe-inspiring countryside, with great plains to the east and the Canadian Rockies to the west, Calgary has plenty to entertain any visitor.
