Canadian Culture Culture, Heritage & Arts

Want the quintessential Canadian experience? Start by hiking to a striking blue glacier lake with a picnic lunch of smoked trout and butter tarts. Then learn to ice skate while kids who just learned to walk do circles around you. And make sure to tell everyone about that one time you went camping and saw a grizzly bear and a moose hanging out. • Only here: Watch a re-enactment of early horseback prowess with Fort Macleod’s Northwest Mounted Police Musical Ride. • Try it: There’s no experience required to get super-Canadian in an Alberta winter. Snowshoe nearly anywhere in the province, road trip through glacier country and finish with a game meat charcuterie board and local brew by a crackling fire. 

Clay Risen from the New York Times writes about the sudden popularity of all kinds of whiskey on both sides of the Canadian-American border that is driving a rapid expansion among Canadian distillers. Clay speaks to Davin de Kergommeaux, a whiskey writer in Ottawa, about the change in the spirit industry in Canada.

Leighton Art Centre is where art and nature come together in Southern Alberta’s Foothills. More than just a unique historic home once owned by a pair of renowned artists, it's a vibrant and open space for creativity, inspiring all who visit to explore, appreciate and create. In 2012, Barbara Leighton - a woman who lived and unconventional life and the Centre's founder - was posthumously honoured as one of '100 Outstanding Albertans' in celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the Calgary Stampede. Her legacy is a beautiful one indeed.

Jasper Park Information Centre National Historic Site

Jasper, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

The Jasper Park Information Centre, built in 1913-14, is one of the earliest and finest examples of rustic design in the national parks. Designed by Edmonton architect, A. M. Calderon, the Jasper Park Information Centre was intended to serve as a landmark and focal point for the town. Built in the rustic design tradition utilizing locally quarried stone and timber, the building set a design example for subsequent construction within the townsite. This vision of a unified architectural theme within the park was novel when first expressed by S. Maynard Rogers, Jasper’s first park superintendent.
