An Introduction to Western Canada

Instead of being defined by states like its neighbour to the south, Canada is instead divided into ten provinces and three northern territories. Its archetypal vistas of the Rockies’ lakes and peaks, endless forests and the prairies are complimented by equally stunning landscapes in the south west corner, where desert and rainforests lie close together.


British Columbia - The Pacific Province

It's hard to think of Canada without thinking of British Columbia. The province is home to incredible wilderness as well as the cosmopolitan cities of Vancouver, where you can visit the Vancouver Aquarium, hire a bike for a trip around the iconic Seawall and wander across the Capilano Suspension Bridge, north of the city. Visit the provincial capital of Victoria, where you can go for high tea at the Fairmont Empress. 

Away from the cities is where BC really shines. Wander through the Pacific Rim National Preserve near Tofino on Vancouver Island, see bears in the wild at a wildlife viewing lodge or try some locally made wine in BC's Okanagan Valley. Enjoy an escape from reality along the Sunshine Coast or visit the iconic Whistler; you don't even have to ski!

Alberta - The Princess Province

Alberta is home to the incredible Banff and Jasper National Parks and the stunning Lake Louise, nestled in the majestic Canadian Rockies. The area is full of unforgettable landscapes and views that will literally take your breath away. You can even go hunting for dinosaur fossils in Drumheller; a visit to the Royal Tyrrell Museum is a must for any enthusiast!

And don't forget the main gateway to the Rockies, Calgary. The city comes alive every July with annual Calgary Stampede, the world's largest rodeo - definitely not to be missed!

Saskatchewan - Land of the Living Skies

Saskatchewan is the land of prairies, 100,000 lakes and rivers and a sky that never ends. The province has a unique spirit that comes to life in its cities, communities and countryside. Discover authentic restaurants, world class freshwater fishing, canoeing, hiking, camping, ranching and horseback riding.
