More Northern Alberta Northern Alberta

Want to feel super Canadian? Travel further north than most humans ever get by exploring northern Alberta. Get your bearings in the wilderness with a guided backcountry ATV tour. Even the sky isn’t the limit in northern Alberta. It’s home to the planet’s largest dark-sky preserve and a festival celebrating the Aurora Borealis. ● Backcountry: Holy solitude. Find yourself enveloped by rugged nature and you might be able to imagine what fur traders and First Nations hunters felt here many years ago. ● Camping: Just because you’re up north doesn’t mean you can’t camp on a white sand beach. Why hello, Lesser Slave Lake.

Jean-Luc Deba Memorial Park

Slave Lake, Alberta

In May 2012, the Jean-Luc Deba Memorial Park was created on the shore of Canyon Creek to honor the sole casualty of the devastating May 2011 wildfires that ravaged the Lesser Slave River region. Deba, 54, died the year prior when his Bell 212 helicopter crashed into the waters of Lesser Slave Lake while trying to drop water on the flames from a bucket attached to his helicopter. Located near a collection of popular local camping and recreational facilities, the park offers a place of enjoyment and quiet reflection. Playground for children nearby at the Canyon Creek Wildfire Legacy Park.
