Alberta – Best time to go

Best time to visit Alberta

We love visiting Alberta from June to September when the temperatures are comfortably hot and the days long and sunny. Outdoor activities like hiking and camping are easily available and the cities host numerous festivals.  

Spring

Alberta’s very cold winters quite often extend into spring, especially throughout March. Spring can be damp but brings lush vegetation to the plentiful forests and parks around Alberta. 

Summer 

Long, sunny days are the norm in Alberta throughout the summer months. From June the temperatures rise and tourists and locals alive flock to the parks, lakes, campgrounds, and golf courses throughout the region. 

Autumn 

Autumn days remain warm and outdoor activities possible well into autumn. The vegetation changes to the colours of autumn by October and numerous harvest festivals occur. Snow begins to fall by November. 

Winter 

Alberta becomes a winter wonderland from about November through February. The snowy weather is stunning, with snow-capped mountains and frozen lakes. Temperatures are well below freezing, especially during January and February, but most days have clear, blue skies.
