Alberta is a great Canadian province to take a road trip. Most people head due West from Calgary to Banff and then work their way to Jasper eventually heading out of Alberta towards British Columbia, but we’ve got a Southern Alberta Travel Guide You’re gonna love! We recently explored the Cowboy Trail from Calgary to the Rocky Mountains, into the prairies and out of the badlands.

This is the ultimate road trip through Rocky Mountains to the Prairies taking you on a journey through different landscapes, history and culture.
