Edmonton & Jasper National Park
There are two sides to every adventure
Discover the journey less travelled when you embark on an adventure in Canada’s North. It all begins in Edmonton – the capital of Alberta and the gateway to the Rockies. From Edmonton, adventure to Jasper National Park where you'll find towering mountains, abundant wildlife and otherworldly canyons. It’s the kind of experience that you’ll remember for a lifetime.
Start by Exploring Edmonton
Throw on some warm layers, and don't forget your mittens. Yes, winter in Edmonton is chilly, but it most certainly isn't boring. We're a craft beer, vintage store, secret-underground-bar kind of city that’s known for our legendary festivals. Here, you'll find bison in your backyard and nightlife at your doorstep.
We make Old Man Winter proud with domed winter patios in the heart of the river valley, city-wide snowball fights, deep freezer races, immersive Indigenous experiences, and spectacular views of the Northern Lights. And that's just the beginning.
Explore Edmonton. Discover Extraordinary.
