Canada - Canadian Prairies

Edmonton is a young city where visitors love any excuse to go out on the town, even in a snowstorm. A vibrant urban centre in the heart of the pristine wilderness, Edmonton is the largest northernmost metropolis and the capital of Alberta, Canada.

Experience eighteen hours of sunlight a day in the summer, or how the first snowfalls can transform the river valley in winter. And then there is prime shopping, too. West Edmonton Mall is the size of a city, and the Old Strathcona farmers market is famous for a reason.

Edmonton is home to North America’s oldest and largest Fringe Festival. Every summer, the Edmonton Folk Music Festival recognised globally is one of the best in the world. Edmonton always embraces winter. There are iced pathways to skate and castles made of icicles. Join some locals in skijoring. That’s when the locals train their pet dogs to pull them around on skis. It’s the next best thing to dogsledding.
