Visitors on Caravan western Canada tours can explore everything from endless prairie landscapes and freshwater lakes, to badlands, glaciers, national parks, World Heritage sites, and hiking through the magnificent Rocky Mountains.
Canada is a very big country and western Canada tours offer tourists some of the best sightseeing opportunities in the world.
The western provinces of Canada include Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia, and most are land locked. The exceptions include a small portion of northeastern Manitoba that borders the Hudson Bay (home to the Port of Churchill) and of course the Pacific Coast on the west side of British Columbia.
Canada West Tours of the Prairie Provinces
Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta are all considered “Prairie Provinces” and at one time the vast majority of the “Prairies” consisted of flat grasslands. Today, the majority of the grasslands have been converted for farm use.
Alberta is a very unique and interesting Canadian province consisting of flat prairies to the south and badlands in central Alberta. It also has the foothills and the eastern part of the Canadian Rocky Mountains in the southwestern part of the province.
