From the imposing, world-famous peaks of the Rocky Mountains in the west to the seemingly endless fields of wheat and canola in the east, Southern Alberta is a land of great contrast, with recreation opportunities as diverse as its landscape. The Rockies are the most dramatic part of this region and attract hikers, campers and mountaineers from across the globe, while anglers and whitewater rafters ply and play in the mountains' many streams. As you make your way east, you will discover fertile hunting grounds and endless ATV trails, with a wide-open prairie landscape that will stir your adventurer's soul and inspire you to take the road less travelled.
