In February 2020 I had the privilege to travel to Alberta and explore its winter wonderland. Never had I see so much snow and Im an avid winter adventurer. Im from Europe and winters in Europe do not even look a tiny bit like winters in Canada. In this blog I will take you along my 2 weeks itinerary in Alberta and give you tips on where to stop and what to do.
Did you know there are plenty opportunities to spot wildlife in Alberta in winter? Although all bears are obviously having their winter sleep and there are less birds in winter, you are still able to spot lots of animals in Alberta, like elk, deer, moose, goats, bighorn sheep, coyotes, wolves, owls, birds, bison and the elusive lynx and cougar or mountain lion. Therefore, I would recommend spotting wildlife as one of the best things to do in Alberta in winter.
