Canadian Geographic Travel Releases All-Alberta Edition

April 30, 2014
by Travel Alberta

An exclusive, Alberta-themed issue of the hugely popular magazine Canadian Geographic Travel hit newsstands April 28, 2014. The entire issue features stories exclusively about the exceptional and diverse tourism and cultural experiences available in Alberta. This is the first time that an issue of Canadian Geographic Travel has ever dedicated a full issue to a single province.
In the magazine, you’ll find stories about an epic canoe trip down the Milk River to Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park, a visit to Pincher Creek’s annual rodeo, meeting the chefs turning Alberta’s best home-grown ingredients into edible art, digging for buffalo bones with archaeologists at the Bodo Archaeological Centre, and exploring Alberta’s industrial history at The Atlas Coal Mine National Historic Site.
The issue’s size had to be increased to 84 pages in order to fit in all of the articles, which feature exceptional, in-depth written coverage of uniquely Albertan experiences from writers including the magazine’s own associate editor Harry Wilson, freelance journalists Remy Scalza, Karan Smith and Leslie Anthony, and local writers Colette Derworiz and Shelley Arnusch, as well as others. Readers will also enjoy stunning photography from Laura Stanley, Remy Scalza, Paul Morrison, and locally-based Callum Snape and Leah Hennel.

The magazine also showcases the photography of the winners of the Canadian Geographic Photo Club’s “Authentic Alberta” photo contest, including the grand prize-winning image entitled “Alien World” by Yu Sheng, a photographer based in Redmond, Washington, USA, as well as winners in categories including Authentic Experiences, Travel Portraits, and Breathtaking Landscapes, and Alberta Wildlife. Winners for the contest were chosen by a panel of photography experts including photographers Paul Politis and Mike Beedell.

In a unique twist, the magazine features two covers on opposite sides of the issue depicting Alberta in both the summer and winter. The covers were selected by a public online vote.
Beyond just appearing in print, a digital version of the magazine is also available for download and additional content is available exclusively online at
