Flights to Alberta are packed with tourists seeking to explore the various alpine attractions, lush forest land, abundant lakes and rivers and a trek through the Rockies. Frequent Alberta travelers will tell you that the best reason to book flights to Alberta is for a taste of the true wilderness.

Alberta’s capital city, Edmonton, is growing and fast becoming the metropolis of the Canadian province. But even Edmonton retains its wilderness roots thanks to the vast parkland that extends throughout the city. Hosting 14 national reserves and educational attractions featuring the world’s largest teepee to native crafts and designs, Alberta is a Mecca of native culture so it’s no surprise the natural beauty of Alberta is revered and world-renowned. Home to five of Canada’s 13 UNESCO World Heritage sites (including Wood Buffalo National Park, Canada’s largest national park and the second largest in the world) Alberta is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts.

Best Time to Fly to Alberta

Alberta features some of Canada’s most famous and breathtaking scenery, so your travel preferences will dictate the best time to book flights to Alberta.

Peak Season:

Mid-summer is generally the busiest time to visit Alberta; school is out, families are on vacation and the outdoor activities are endless. Most US travelers book Alberta flights to Banff for a central location to all the provinces’ sites, but planning is essential. Banff fills up quickly during the summer months so booking flights and lodging in advance is necessary. 

Off Season:

The Rocky Mountains play a large part to Alberta’s natural scenery, and offer amazing ski options for winter travelers. However, heavy snowfall is common in the region and parts of the mountain areas shut down, so travelers seeking cheap flights to Alberta during the winter months need to plan ahead.
