Southern Alberta

Hollywood loves Southern Alberta. Why? It'll be obvious when you get here. Brace yourself for beautiful mountains, forests, prairies, canyons, Canadian Badlands and foothills. All in one place.

  • Get worldly: Three of Alberta’s five UNESCO World Heritage sites are in Southern Alberta: Dinosaur Provincial Park, Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump and Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. Visit any of them when you want to get deeper during your travels.
  • Prehistoric: The dinosaurs are long-gone, but the land they once roamed is now prime road-trip territory. Drive the Drumheller Valley route from Calgary to the Dinosaur and Hoodoo trails. Definitely plan to stop for photos and a hike through a veritable moonscape.
