Food, Shopping & Relaxation

Because no traveller can survive on caffeine, beef jerky and breathtaking natural wonders alone, refuelling is essential. ● Eat up: Your Alberta things-to-eat checklist: all the beef, all the bison, at least one bite of poutine (it’s very filling), and some locally grown vegetables. ● Shop: You need souvenirs. Or jewellery by a Canadian designer. Or a new lamp. What you don’t need is an excuse to drop some loonies at Alberta’s big malls and quirky retail neighbourhoods. ● Spa-ahh: Pause your hike, park on a log and ask your favourite travelling companion for a foot rub. Or, even better: soak in a natural hot spring or book into a relaxing mountain spa.
