    Banff National Park What to Pack

    Comfortable shoes for walking, and not just on sidewalks, but on walking paths, and rough ground. As you go up higher in the mountains, have a jacket - for example, while short sleeves are fine in the town, you'll find it much cooler up at the top of the gondola. Lots of film, telephoto lenses because its safer to take the pics of animals at a...

  • Clothing - Summer

    Edmonton What to Pack

    If you wanna shop, don't bring much (clothes wise) cause you'll prolly trek on down to WEM and go on a shopping spree. Leave some space in your luggage for stuff that you're prolly gonna buy and bring back to your city/state/country when you're here in Edm. The weather condition in the Prairies can be rather unpredictable. I mean, there was this...

    Calgary What to Pack

    I was on my way to Calgary at the end of April, we were DAYS away from the month of May when this HUGE snow storm happened: over 50 cm fell on the Calgary area; over 70 cm in the Banff area! The roads were blocked and my friend and I had to spend the night in a small town's City Hall along with other unlucky drivers. When we finally got to...

  • Cameras

    Banff What to Pack

    With my other tip about taking a great camera, if you are snowboarding or skiing, unless you are fantastic, I advise leaving that at home.

Yes, i had a few falls, but they were never in risk of getting damaged or...

  • back for changeable weather

    Though I am sure Alberta is great for backpacking, I have not done any yet. In Banff National Park, unless you like paying C$20 per day each, you can leave your backpack at home but a day pack is essential in this hiking paradise. Bring good sturdy hiking boots and comfy socks to handle the rocky trails of Banff. Bring synthetic clothing which is...

  • Essential Summer Packing

    If you are in Alberta during the summer you should definetly have some strong mosquito protection especially if you go outside of the cities.

You can by bug juice at just about any gas station or convient store.

Edmonton is at 670m (2198 feet), Calgary is at 1,048m (3437 feet) and Lloydminster which is at the far eastren side of the province which is on the otherside of the...
