Canadian Badlands Ltd

Covering a broad swath of southern and eastern Alberta, the Canadian Badlands are a unique place to explore. Eons of compressed sea deposits have been carved by glaciation and subsequent erosion into a striking landscape of strangely-sculpted badland formations and rolling prairies bisected by coulees and deep river valleys.

Boomtown Trail

Boomtown Trail communities sprang to life almost overnight around a century ago, spurred on by the expansion of the railways. This rapid development led to a very distinctive style of architecture, characterized by a grandly designed front covering a more humble building behind it. Known as “boomtown” architecture, it was typical of many buildings in the North American west at the turn of the 20th century.  Almost every community on the drive from Strathmore to Camrose features original buildings from the boomtown era, taking you back to the origins of small town Alberta.
