It doesn’t matter if you are a tourist, frequent visitor to Edmonton, or born and raised Edmontonian; no matter what your status, there are always unique and untold truths and stories that come from food. While you may be restaurant savvy and enjoy some of Alberta’s best food accredited to your own explorations and taste, there’s nothing quite like experiencing a day of multiple curated meals in different environments. Locals taking food tours in their own city often say, “I’ve lived in this city my whole life and walked away with more information than I’ve ever had before.”With almost 25 Edmonton restaurant partners we create a unique experience with every food tour.Edmonton’s vibrant food industry comes to life under the sun, so naturally patios are a mandatory part of every food tour. You might be able to taste a cheesemaker’s newest product, or see into the kitchen of a hot, up-and-coming restaurant or maybe take a tour of a keg room. Always something to learn and lots to eat and drink.
Mountain Madness tours runs supported cycling tours between Jasper and Banff. A well designed van and trailer will provide transportion, carry all your luggage, set up rest stops, and be just around the corner if you need some support along the way. They'll organize your accommodations, meals and supply bike rentals if required. Worried about bumps in the road or keeping up with your friends on the tour, they have e-bike rentals available also. With three national parks located in Alberta, what better way to explore these spectacular locations than from the seat of a bike. It’s human powered travel at its best with no roof to get in the way of the soaring mountain peaks, and no windows to insulate the traveler from the sounds and smells of the untouched natural surroundings. You’ll cycle past ancient glaciers, raging waterfalls and be soothed by the sound of glacier fed rivers. Due to the slower pace of travel you’ll be more likely to encounter wildlife. You’ll be able to stop, rest and reflect on your journey through the rockies by the many roadside turquoise glacial lakes. You’ll be immersed in the fresh clean mountain air and travel at a pace that enables you to take full advantage of all your senses.
