Alberta - Rodeos & Wild Roses
Alberta boasts the country's largest horse population, a flourishing First Nations culture and the country's two richest rodeos. From its ranching beginnings to an international reputation for welcoming visitors, Alberta is a destination that can't be missed.
Alberta is bordered by the Rocky Mountains to the west and the vast prairie of Saskatchewan to the east. Throughout this diverse landscape is a distinct western culture.
Alberta boasts a range of adventures ranging from leisurely ranch holidays to riding and backcountry pack trips. For those who want to be immersed in the culture, a must-do is a full ranch vacation. Perhaps you'll move cattle to the high country with working cowboys, or learn some finer points of horsemanship. Be sure to book a multi-day pack trip into the backcountry with one of Alberta's legendary outfitters.
