MUST-DO WINTER EXPERIENCES IN CANADA’S ALBERTA
Winter in Alberta means sunny bluebird days, ice-covered lakes and fluffy champagne powder that makes for some of the best skiing in the world. For those not looking to hit the slopes, there are plenty of ways to make the most of this winter wonderland.
Indulge in the magic of the Canadian Rockies
There are countless ways to explore Alberta’s spectacular mountain scenery in Banff and Lake Louise, Canmore / Kananaskis and Jasper. Visitors can explore frozen canyons, snowshoe, skate on frozen lakes, take a gondola ride, experience the excitement of a dog sled, or take in the serenity in a scenic horse-drawn sleigh ride. Once inside, guests can indulge with delectable farm to table meals or savour the flavours of locally brewed and award-winning beer and spirits.
Explore an urban oasis
Visitors can indulge in culinary delights with an Alberta Food Tour in Canada’s third-largest city, Calgary, or check out countless events in Canada’s Festival City, Edmonton – also home to North America’s largest shopping and entertainment centre, West Edmonton Mall.
Experience Alberta’s Indigenous cultures
Alberta is vast and diverse, and so are the Indigenous peoples who have lived there for time immemorial. Each Indigenous group has its own history, culture and traditions, and incredible stories to tell.
In the winter, visitors can check out Alberta’s newest cultural attraction, Métis Crossing. Guests can immerse themselves in experiences like stargazing, animal tracking and traditional Métis handicrafts, and can stay overnight in the boutique lodge or one of the new sky watching domes for the best chance to see night sky illuminated with aurora.
