The Most Scenic Road Trips in Alberta
Whether your passion is exploring natural wonders, soaking up some local culture in quaint towns, or venturing into the wilderness, Alberta's diverse routes offer endless discovery.
The BoomTown Trail
Starting in Calgary and finishing in Edmonton, the BoomTown Trail offers road-trippers a chance to combine scenery-chasing with some fascinating history. A great way to experience it is to rent an RV as several sites offer a place to park for the night. The trail itself is populated by many small towns that sprang up during the days of the railway construction and each one has a unique, old-world aesthetic. Highlights of the scenery include Buffalo Lake, where you'll also find Ol' MacDonald Resort, a park that offers a beach, a petting zoo and even mini-golf. The Alberta Prairie Railway Excursion offers a chance to ride a steam-powered train.
The Dinosaur Trail
Beginning at Drumheller, the Dinosaur trail takes you through the often-times desolate badlands of Eastern Alberta. As the name suggests, this area was once a hotspot for dinosaur activity. The average resident may have changed but the landscape still retains that sense of primordial bleakness that is both captivating and profound, and a stop at The Royal Tyrrell Museum offers a chance to view one of the largest dinosaur fossil collections in the world. Other scenic highlights include Horseshoe Canyon, carved into a U-shape by a passing glacier millions of years ago, and Horse Thief Canyon, another rocky landscape that gets its name from the outlaws who used to hide between the rock walls.
The Icefields Parkway
Once voted one of the ten most beautiful road trips on the planet, this is not one to miss. Going from Lake Louise to Jasper, the views include ice fields, soaring mountains and immense valleys. There are a staggering 100 glaciers situated around this 232km road trip, complete with cascading waterfalls that emerge as the ice melts. The Athabasca glacier is the easiest to get to and the most visitor-friendly; a specially adapted bus will take you out onto the glacier itself where you'll be given a chance to swig a little of the 10,000-year-old meltwater!
