How to Fill 17 Hours of Sunlight in Edmonton

Edmonton is known for its glorious summer days. June through August, the sun can rise as early as 5:00am and set as late as 10:00pm. That’s 17 hours of vitamin D, and plenty of time to pack in tons of warm-weather activities. Don't worry, making the most of a sunny day has never been so easy—we've got you covered with this fool proof itinerary:

Sunrise in the City

Breakfast of Champions

The Morning is Your Oyster

If it happens to be a Saturday, head to City Market Downtown on 97th Street for food trucks, live music, handmade goods and fresh produce. Shop local and pick up some uniquely Edmonton souvenirs. Then grab a sandwich (or maybe half a dozen Moonshine doughnuts?) 'to go' for lunch a little later.

Dinner Al Fresco

But Wait, There's More...

Sunset, Never Forget

Your 17 hours are almost up—can you believe it?! Cap off the day by instagramming some shots of the sunset. Premium spots include: The Alberta Legislature (10800 97 Avenue NW), Forest Heights Park (10104 84 Street NW), The High Level Bridge (109 Street) and Gallagher Park (9411 97 Avenue NW). Your tan may fade away, but the memories will last forever. Click here for even more sun-filled activities to make this summer one for the books.
