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.
