Between the Rockies and the Canadian Prairies, in the heart of Alberta ranching country lays the historic Cowboy Trail. Today, one discovers landscapes typical of the Canadian West: rolling wheat fields, cattle pastures and rustic villages flanked by high rocky peaks. In another era, one would have encountered bison herds and Aboriginal camps. The Cowboy Trail provides opportunities to experience nature and adventure, as well as history and culture. At the border of Canada and the United States, framed by prairies and mountains, discover one of the Rockies’ most beautiful attractions: majestic Waterton National Park. Immerse yourself in the lives of Alberta cowboys and local Aboriginal communities, and enjoy the natural splendour of the Rockies’ parks. A multitude of activities await at every step of this trip.
