NEW - 4th Edition Includes Southern Alberta National Parks!
Surrounding city centres like Calgary, Drumheller, Lethbridge and Medicine Hat, the landscapes of southern Alberta offer a feast for the senses. With a striking contrast of large, sweeping prairies against towering mountain peaks, and temperatures ranging along an 80 degree Celsius scale, from Calgary to Medicine Hat this is a land of the extremes. Our maps help you discover an endless expanse of farmland rolling across a backdrop of dramatic mountainscapes paralleled by few on this planet. Explore southern Alberta’s near-desert sliced through by some of Canada’s largest rivers, and rolling stretches of yellow canola fields splashed across the deep blue sky.
The backcountry delineated on our maps outside of Calgary, Drumheller, Lethbridge and Medicine Hat will delight your eyes. Take the Crowsnest Pass leading into BC through stunning mountain vistas, or hike the Crypt Lake Trail through wide valleys and natural mountain tunnels. To sleep in the heart of a majestic mountain range, set up camp on the shores of Kananaskis Lake in the Peter Lougheed Provincial Park. Our maps offer a wealth of things to do in Calgary, Canmore, Medicine Hat and beyond, like paddling, camping, hiking, fishing, snowmobiling, ATVing, hunting and more. Wherever your travels take you, Backroad Mapbooks’ Alberta map book will help you to carve out the gems that southern Alberta has to offer.
In your durable, heavy-duty, spiral-bound 21.5 cm x 28 cm (8.5" x 11") Southern Alberta map book you will find 55 detailed topographic maps spanning the region, complete with labeled recreation sites, amenities, highways, backcountry roads, trails and other points-of-interest.
