Alberta & British Columbia

AsSalamu'alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuhu,

I was wondering if anyone lives in or has visited Alberta or BC (the southern half of both provinces). Salik and I will be travelling there, insha'Allah, and would love any advice/tips on what to see and do there...the "must do" list.

We're driving between Calgary and Vancouver (and in and around each of those cities).

Please post or email.

Barak Allahu fi kum.



  1. Aslamaua aliakum Bajee,

    I was in Alberta last month. YOU HAVE TO visit Lake Louise and Banf. ANd if you get time and have "himah" then drive to Jasper National Park as well. Try visiting popular areas like Lake Louise during week days if you can because it gets really crowded on weekends. Here are my pictures:

    As for BC:

    Vancouver is great but interior BC is even better...

    Specifically if you get a chance then try to drive around in the hills/mountains in interior BC. The views along the road are breath taking..subhanallah.

    If you can, then try to visit Kelowna, Vernon, Picton, Kamloops, etc. in BC. Here are a few of my photos from BC from my trip last year.
    Duas please.



  2. Wa'alaykum AsSalam Sidi,

    Jazak Allah khayr for taking the time to give some advice. Masha'Allah, lucky you: a free trip to the west coast!

    Insha'Allah, I hope there's more sun when we go :)
