The province of Alberta is a showcase of natural beauty that inspires travellers across all seasons. With the Rocky Mountains luring visitors to hike and fish and ride horses through alpine meadows, in addition to simply enjoying the beauty of looking closely at a glacier's edge or getting a birds-eye view of the mountain ranges from the comforts of a gondola ride, there are activities that appeal to all types. Even with the cresting mountains surrounding Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper, the province is still considered a prairie province with numerous ranches and wheat fields stretching across the horizon. Rodeo enthusiasts may wish to experience the 'Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth' at Calgary's annual Stampede, or dig down into the Badlands and search for dinosaur fossils. The Royal Tyrell Museum at Drumheller actually hosts more dinosaur skeletons than anywhere else in the world. If you missed spotting bears, wolves or bighorn sheep in the mountains, the Royal Alberta Museum in Edmonton (also the most northerly major city in all of Canada) has a display that is sure to impress. On the outskirts of the city, visit Elk Island National Park and witness bison roaming across fields or at the forests edge while pelicans fly overhead.The options of transporting along train tracks or winding roads offer a journey that will add to the holiday memory of a lifetime
