Edmonton Northern Alberta

Edmonton is a young city that loves any excuse to go out on the town, even in a snowstorm. And there's prime shopping, too. West Edmonton Mall is literally the size of a city and the Old Strathcona farmers market is famous for a reason.  

  • Culture bug: Edmonton is home to North America’s oldest and largest Fringe Festival every summer. The Edmonton Folk Music Festival is recognized as one of the best in the world.
  • Winter wonders: Edmonton embraces winter. There are iced pathways to skate around  and castles made of icicles. Join some locals in skijoring. That’s when people train their pet dogs to pull them around on skis. It's the next best thing to dog-sledding.
