Things to Do in Alberta

divider

Take part in authentic and inspiring Indigenous activities throughout Alberta. Spend the night in a tipi as Northern Lights swirl colour across the prairie sky. Hear legends and tales over tea and warm bannock around a campfire. Experience mystical heritage sites. Feel the vibrant energy of a traditional dance or the tranquillity of canoeing amid ancient forests. Snowshoe or horseback ride into the mountains to learn survival skills and spot elk, moose, bears and bighorn sheep. Across Alberta, knowledgeable First Nations and Métis operators are keen to share their culture through varied experiences from the rugged Rockies’ peaks and foothills through the southern prairies that give way to the vast northern boreal forest.
