Winter. We Were Made for This.
Here in Edmonton we do winter right. We leave hibernation to the bears and take advantage of the city's boundless outdoor experiences and incredible adrenaline fueled-adventures just waiting to be explored. Winter is more than just a season here. It's in our DNA.
No matter how you explore, be sure to continue practicing safe spatial distancing, frequent hand washing and following the guidelines put in place to keep everyone safe.

Explore Indigenous Edmonton
Edmonton is lucky to boast the second largest Indigenous population in Canada, full of talented performers, artisans, musicians, and entrepreneurs. Join Sissy from Wase Saba (Black Bear) Experiences for an immersive Indigenous Powwow Dance Experience or take part in an interactive tour with Talking Rock Tours and discover the story of the land with a Métis guide and geologist.
Embark on a transformational experience at Métis Crossing, just 1.5 hours northeast of Edmonton. Make it a day-trip and discover how the Métis lived as trappers, learn about historical families and their homes, and understand how plants are used as medicine. Strap on a set of snowshoes, set a snare, build a survival shelter, and much more. While Métis Crossing is currently closed, you can look forward to reopening dates announced shortly! Stay tuned for new experiences coming soon including a Boutique Lodge, the Visions, Hopes and Dreams Wildlife Park, Cross Country Ski Trails and Whispers from the Stars Stargazing Experience.
