Many of northern Alberta’s towns and hamlets sit on the doorstep of untamed wilderness. Discover remote lakeside communities boasting world class fly-in fishing lodges. Raft or paddle along historic fur trading routes. Learn about First Nations and European voyagers and pioneers at a museum or historic site. Camp on a picture perfect white sand beach. In the long daylight hours of summer, golf well into the night at one of the many northern courses. In winter, ice fish, snowshoe or take a backcountry ATV tour with a local guide. Stargaze and experience the magic of the aurora borealis. Celebrate Alberta’s great north at a beloved annual festival.
