Hiking

Alberta's infinite variety of landscapes can satisfy any hiker's wanderlust. Thousands of kilometers of trails beckon for all abilities, from short easy rambles to classic hikes and multi-day treks. Epic scenery awaits in our protected parks and wildlands. Try heli-hiking in our Canadian Rockies backcountry and discover secluded alpine lakes and mountain meadows where wildflowers and wildlife abounds. Explore the mysterious Canadian Badlands and witness the work of eons of erosion that sculpted this strangely compelling terrain. Discover the silence of a northern boreal forest. Wander through grasslands stretching to the horizon. Our temperate climate is ideal for hiking, from spring through autumn.
