Sandwiched between British Columbia and Ontario lies the beauty of the Canadian Prairies. Beginning where the Rocky Mountains end, the region covers three expansive provinces – Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Take a look at these superb images of the region and discover why it’s worth taking a trip from Edmonton to visit the Canadian prairies.
As the heartland of Canada’s farming and oil industries, the preservation of a rural existence still characterises the area – although today many cities like Edmonton are dotted throughout the region.
Journeying through the Canadian Prairies takes in the diverse and magnificent landscapes, which sees large forests give way to expansive plains and crop fields.
Saskatchewan is home to Grasslands, Canada’s only official Prairie National Park, which gives visitors the opportunity to get up close to the rare wildlife that thrives there, ancient teepee rings and prehistoric fossils.
The Canadian Prairies are equally known for the dramatic, moody seasons experienced in the region. The area often plays host to unbelievably harsh winters and aggressive thunderstorms on the one hand, and delightfully sunny summer days on the other, making it a year-round spectacle of nature, whatever the weather.
The vast open flatlands and open skies make visiting the Canadian Prairies an exhilarating adventure into the wild.
