    Discover Alberta

    In Alberta, the lakes and rivers can no longer be counted. You have to canoe down the river Milk, between sandstone cliffs, to live as at the time of the American Indians. The legendary mountains of the province, the Rockies, are the scenery of fairytales. The clouds touch the earth... This is the case, for example, of the Banff national park, the first created in the country, which has immense peaks, Alpine fields, and endless turquoise lakes: immense nature in the fresh air. In the Jasper national park, a path called the Columbia Icefield Snocoach takes you to the Athabasca glacier, which is pierced by deep blue crevasses. The north of Alberta has become a paradise for fishermen with lakes and rivers filled with yellow pike, perch, trout, and vendace.
