About Alberta Cottage Rentals and Vacation Home Rentals
Alberta is a region of many contrasts, from the Continental Divide in the Rockies to the grassland plains on the southeastern corner, from forests to plains. It is one of the few places in Canada that has both pastoral views and aspen groves in addition to vast mountains or grassy plains. No matter if you are planning a hunting trip, a fishing excursion, or hitting the historical sights in the southern areas of the province you are sure to have a great time in Alberta. From the major metropolitan areas of Calgary and Edmonton which offer skiing and shopping respectively, to the town of Drumheller that hosts the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology there are many urban attractions here. For the outdoor buff there are five UNESCO world heritage sites all of which are parks, including Banff National Park, Jasper National Park, Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, Wood Buffalo National Park, Dinosaur Provincial Park and Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump.
The Rockies Mountains offer hiking, rafting, fishing, camping, horseback riding, and, in the winter, skiing. Fishing can also be found in the aspen groves and plains where a number of lakes offer campgrounds and boating docks. Urban thrill seekers are not left out here, with Lethbridge offering the Galt Museum and Archives, or in Calgary you can look at he Heritage Park Historical Village on the banks of the Glenmore Reservoir. Taking a historical train trip is one way to catch most of the attractions, from the restored farms in Stirling to the mountain vistas of the Rockies.
