Canadian Culture Culture, Heritage & Arts

Want the quintessential Canadian experience? Start by hiking to a striking blue glacier lake with a picnic lunch of smoked trout and butter tarts. Then learn to ice skate while kids who just learned to walk do circles around you. And make sure to tell everyone about that one time you went camping and saw a grizzly bear and a moose hanging out. • Only here: Watch a re-enactment of early horseback prowess with Fort Macleod’s Northwest Mounted Police Musical Ride. • Try it: There’s no experience required to get super-Canadian in an Alberta winter. Snowshoe nearly anywhere in the province, road trip through glacier country and finish with a game meat charcuterie board and local brew by a crackling fire. 

Viking battles, fjord horses, Scandinavian dancing - all of it and more came to Red Deer on June 24th. To commemorate the Norwegian Laft Hus Society's 30th anniversary, volunteers held a festival that the city won't soon forget.
