3 Picture Perfect Places to Visit in Alberta Canada


Considered to be one of the most picturesque places on earth there is no doubting that Canada is hot spot for photographers, nature lovers and travellers. Moraine Lake in Canada is one of my perfect places to visit in Alberta. However Greta Lietuvninkaite over at Adventure Travel magazine has detailed her 6 favourite spots to relax.

1. JOHNSTON CANYON

When we hear the word 'canyon', most of us instantly imagine the Grand Canyon as the master of all. Even though the latter may have no equal, in Alberta you might unexpectedly find amazing canyons you never knew existed.

Johnston Canyon is one of them and it's located in Banff National Park. It’s well known among locals as well as tourists, who enjoy both summer and winter activities while visiting. The canyon not only offers stunning scenery, full of steep rough rocks and blue water underneath, but also famous frozen waterfalls during wintertime.

Trails are easy and not too steep, including a number of footbridges and sightseeing stops. And if you’re patient enough, you might even reach mysterious ink pots at the end.

2. MALIGNE CANYON

Maligne Canyon is another beautiful location in Alberta that attracts tourists from the nearby town of Jasper. Particularly winding and narrow, it will enchant you with its multilayered rocks and swift river. This is one of the deepest gorges in the Canadian Rockies and it looks surreal in all seasons. 

3. LAKE LOUISE

Before sending a postcard to your loved ones from Canada, don’t forget to visit one of the most famous tourist attractions (it will probably be on that postcard). This pure, lucid glacial lake is known for it’s stunning beauty, turquoise colour and unbelievable scenery and is surrounded by high Canadian Rockies as well as dense forests.
