UK's Guardian newspaper lists Alberta as a top destination

Alberta is listed as #9 in the Guardian's top 40 places to see in 2014. They mention the soon-to-be open Glacier Skywalk, skiing (particularly at Lake Louise), and cosmopolitan Calgary: theguardian.com/travel/2014/jan/03/holiday-h…

What else would you recommend to UK visitors who may be thinking of Alberta for the first time?

My suggestions:

Icefields Parkway (of course!) - the incredibly scenic Hwy 99 between Jasper and Lake Louise. Plan to spend a whole day (preferably two) with a picnic lunch & snacks so that you can enjoy all of the viewpoints along the way:

Dinosaur Provincial Park - this UNESCO World Heritage site is best know for a century's worth of ongoing dinosaur excavations, but to me, the hoodoos are just as interesting. This is a unique "melting ice cream" kind of landform seen in few places around the world:
