Walk and talk (and eat) in Jasper
Foodie tours in Jasper National Park include short walks and informative talks between four downtown restaurants and several points of interest. The three-hour tour departs daily at 2:30 p.m.
Hike through history
The Victoria Trail Voyageur Experience is an immersive program that links the fur trade story with Métis Crossing and Victoria Settlement Provincial Historic Site, located an hour northeast of Edmonton. Groups participate in activities that include weaving, hiking and canoeing.
Horse racing is back
Edmonton’s Northlands Park closed at the end of the 2016, but a new track will open its gates in April. Century Mile Racetrack and Casino, located next to Edmonton International Airport, will offer 100 race days per year, and the multi-level casino will provide gaming as well as host concerts and festivals year-round.
Don’t forget the dinosaurs
The visitor center in Drumheller is guarded by a XXXL-size replica of a Tyrannosaurus rex, and this southern Alberta town is home to Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology. Inside Canada’s only museum dedicated exclusively to that branch of science, visitors can enjoy educational programs and one of the world’s largest displays of dinosaurs.
