This is Edmonton

We camp with bison, party under the aurora, and surf on the prairies. We've always done things a little differently, and we welcome you to be a part of it.

Edmonton is a vibrant urban centre in the heart of the wilderness, the largest northernmost metropolis, and the capital of Alberta, Canada. Experience what 18 hours of sunlight a day feels like in the summer, or how the first snowfall transforms the river valley in winter. No matter the season, Edmonton is made for exploring.
