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.

Reviews

Victoria Settlement brings to life three major themes in Alberta's history: missionary activity, fur trade and settlement. Discover history on the North Saskatchewan River along the Victoria Trail where Reverend George McDougall founded a Methodist Mission to the Cree in 1862. This is where the Hudson's Bay Company established Fort Victoria in 1864 to trade with local indigenous people. The Mission and Fort became the nucleus for a Metis community whose river lots extended six miles along the bank of the river.
