Boating & Swimming Summer Outdoor Activities

There’s nothing better than a soft sandy beach on a hot summer day and Alberta has plenty of those crystal clear lakes, perfect for sunning or boating. Rent a jet ski, a fly board, a canoe or a paddleboard and have an adventure. Go on a boat tour, stand at the bow of the boat and stare into perfectly turquoise water. Let the fresh breeze ruffle your hair and watch the sun glitter on the lake like tiny diamonds. Gaze up at the mountains and marvel at the forces of nature that forged this perfect setting.
