Alberta, in western Canada, is bounded by the provinces of British Columbia to the west and Saskatchewan to the east, the Northwest Territories to the north and the U.S. state of Montana to the south. Alberta is one of three Canadian provinces and territories to border only a single U.S. state and also one of only two Canadian provinces that are landlocked.
The two main urban areas are the capital city of Edmonton and Alberta's largest city - Calgary. Both gateways offer fantastic shopping, cultural festivals and an abundance of dining experiences.
Alberta, of course, is also the home of the Canadian Rockies. Famous for towering peaks, outstanding scenery, pristine lakes, an abundance of wildlife and a laid back atmosphere. You'll also find fantastic shopping, great cuisine and many urban surprises year round.
