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. 

The Bergquist House is a century old Alberta prairie farmhouse that once was located 2 miles north of Carseland. It was the main hub for an Alberta family on a 2,000 acre farm back in the early 1900's.

VIking Ribstones

Viking, Alberta

Near Viking, on the top of a hill, at the highest point for miles around, stand the only Ribstones in Alberta that have not been moved since ancient times. Ribstones, also known as Boulder Petroglyphs, are two large stones carved in the shape of an animal's rib cage. These ancient monuments have remained in place just a few kilometers from Viking, Alberta for thousands of years. Historically, the native people of the plains were dependent on the buffalo. They revered the spirit of Old Man Buffalo, expressing their prayers and gratitude at the Ribstone shrines.

Concert featuring Over the Moon

Bragg Creek, Alberta
2018-02-10 to 2018-02-10 MST

Over the Moon's music is a wild ride from 40’s-sounding western swing, Appalachian old-time, to cowboy blues. Simple and sweet, all of their material has a common thread that speaks of the Canadian west. This performance in the intimate setting of Redwood House really should not be missed.
