Each Canadian province has something incredible to offer roadtrippers. If you haven’t been through Alberta, it’s the perfect place to bring your RV. What sets it apart from other provinces? Variety. Let us explain why Alberta is the best province for road trips.
Quickly Changing Landscapes
Alberta is the home of the Rocky Mountains, where the stunning imagery of Banff and Lake Louise draw thousands of visitors year-round. But Alberta has more to offer than mountains. Vast prairies, desert badlands, ice fields, and boundless forests make the Albertan landscape unlike any other in the world.
Plan to make fun stops at places like the Calgary Stampede, West Edmonton Mall, and Wood Buffalo National Park–the largest Canadian national park. Have you checked out Drumheller and Dinosaur Provincial Park? Whether you’re into the outdoors or urban festivities, Alberta covers it all.
For bird lovers, Alberta is home to owls, hawks, waterfowl, woodpeckers and more. If you’ve always wanted to see buffalo, moose, big horned sheep, wolves, bears, lynx, or mountain goats, you’ll find those in this province, too. Enjoy Instagram-worthy wildlife sightings while you drive through one of Alberta’s five national parks or 250 provincial parks, which protect almost 600 species.
While Alberta is one of the most desirable road trip destinations in Canada, it’s also the most vehicle-friendly. Alberta boasts more than 31,000 km of highway and over 226,000 km of public roads. That’s nearly a quarter of Canada’s entire network, and it means you have a ton of options for getting around. The province has two east-west highways: Highway 1 through Calgary, and Highway 16 through Edmonton. Both are part of Canada’s coast-to-coast highway system, making Alberta a straight-shot from anywhere in Canada.
No matter what you’re into, Alberta’s got it. Who needs the ocean when you have turquoise glacial lakes at your fingertips? Jump in the driver’s seat and get rolling.
