Take a self-guided tour through the Canadian Badlands, or a guided tour that will reveal some of the wonders of the area, like 'fairy chimneys', twisting canyons and an exhilarating suspension bridge. Photo by @jeremyklager | #explorealberta at Dinosaur Provincial Park


Flying high over the lake and it's still trying to hold onto summer. This one's for the books. Photo by @michaelmatti | #explorealberta at Crowsnest Pass


You’re probably like, “OMG! This is the cutest and fluffiest little owl!” And sure, it’s about the size of your cellphone but don’t let its adorable looks fool you: the Northern Pygmy Owl is a ferocious pint-sized hunter in its environment.

The 14 kms to Spirit Island is worth every paddle. Because you know, it's all about the journey not the destination. Photo by @helloemilie | #explorealberta at Spirit Island


Brrr! Sweater weather has arrived in Medicine Hat. Sure, it might be a little chilly but its small-town heart will warm you up faster than a pumpkin spice latte. Photo by @hecktictravels | #explorealberta at Medicine Hat, Alberta


If you're driving along the Icefields Parkway you can't miss this beauty. Bow Lake makes all selfies look good. Photo by @davey_gravy | #explorealberta at Bow Lake

If you climb to the top of the Rock Pile Trail (it’s literally a large pile of rocks, you can’t miss it) you’ll get the best view of this very photogenic lake. Go ahead, take a picture ... or 50. Photo by @ordinarytraveler | #explorealberta at Moraine Lake


That feeling when you can’t decide whether the icy blue lake or the sun shining on the jagged mountains is your favourite and you just have to think about it for a minute. Photo by @xshaydx | #explorealberta at Maligne Lake


Get away from the bright city lights and head east of Edmonton. You’ll find that the sky shines brighter over here, so pack a blanket, some warm clothes, a camera, some hot chocolate and get ready for the show. You’ll be mesmerized. Seriously, it’s better than Netflix. Photo by @markjinksphoto | #explorealberta at Elk Island National Park


Moose? Check. Sunrise? Check. Marking things off your bucket list? Check. Photo by @nickparaykoimages | #explorealberta at Westlock, Alberta
