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.

Historic Dunvegan

Fairview, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

Alberta is steeped in history of Indigenous people, the fur trade and missionaries. Historic Dunvegan, a National Historic Site of Canada nestled in the stunning Peace River valley, brings that history to life. Four original, authentically-restored and furnished buildings are still located in the same places they were over 100 years ago, and historic interpreters are waiting to share the stories that helped shape the province we know today.

Sons of Maxwell: Christmas Super Deluxe

Spruce Grove, Alberta
2017-12-16 to 2017-12-16 MST

Sons of Maxwell blend original music with the best holiday standards. With two great Christmas CDs under their belts, they have a lot of repertoire to choose from, applying their signature harmonies to classics like 'Deck the Halls', 'Hark the Herald Angels Sing', and 'Frosty the Snowman' to new pieces like 'Señor Santa Clause' and 'Jesus Christ is Born Today'. Don and Dave Carroll began their music duo career in university and they have not slowed down since. They have won multiple awards - including two East Coast Music Awards - and received many more nominations, and they have toured North America, Europe, Asia, and the Caribbean. Along with their long and successful shared career, both the brothers have individual musical interests. Dave has released two solo albums and Don has followed his love of jazz standards by putting together a swing band and releasing an album of his own. And yes, Dave Carroll is the artist behind the 'United Breaks Guitars' trilogy.

Spruce Grove, Alberta
2018-01-20 to 2018-01-20 MST

This is your chance to sing-a-long to the most successful movie musical of all time at one of the funniest, most interactive movie screenings you've experienced since Horizon Stage presented Grease in 2015. Sing-a-long-a Sound of Music is not just a chance to see the classic movie on the big screen in magnificent Technicolor and glorious cinemascope, it's a major audience participation event with subtitles for the songs. Sing along with Julie, wave your edelweiss, dance in the gazebo with Liesl, bark at Rolf, snuggle up with Gretel, and join in earnest choruses of 'My Favorite Things'. A host will lead the audience through a vocal warm up and give you a comprehensive guide to the accompanying actions and use of the interactive fun pack. Sing-a-long-a attendees are encouraged to dress up as anything, and everything, represented in the classic film - the possibilities are as endless as the sunlight on a perfect alpine day.
