With breathtaking mountain ranges, spectacular national parks, a rich history, and vibrant cities, a trip to Western Canada will stir your emotions. Western Canada is comprised of four provinces: Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia. Western Canada has something to offer for every kind of traveler.
For outdoor adventurers, the Canadian wilderness offers plenty of thrills, from the majestic Rockies in Banff National Park to the snow-capped peaks surrounding Lake Louise. Channel your inner Olympian as you fly down the slopes of any one of many ski resorts in the area. In the summer months, trade in your parka for shorts and tank tops. The Okanagan Valley in southern British Columbia offers wineries, beaches, golf, and festivals. Or, return to the Canadian Wild West in Saskatchewan where cowboys and outlaws once roamed the rugged terrain.
If cities are more your speed, Vancouver and Edmonton can be the perfect places to visit. Museums and attractions like the Vancouver Art Gallery, TELUS World of Science, and the Vancouver Symphony at the Orpheum Theatre teeming with culture. Round off your trip to Vancouver with a bay cruise or a stroll around Stanley Park or downtown. For great shopping, Edmonton is the home of the West Edmonton Mall which boasts a waterpark, ice rink, underground aquarium, amusement park, and excellent dining options.
