Central Alberta is a wonderful place for a vacation. The area boasts a tremnedous amount of vacation rentals and chalets to help you in enjoy your Alberta holiday. From the city and shopping in Edmonton to the rustic Rocky Mountain House, you will certainly find a vacation rental to meet your needs.
From the foothills of the rugged Rocky Mountains in the west to the endless expanse of golden plains in the east, Central Alberta’s diverse topography and its year-round outdoor and cultural experiences are what makes this region and its cottage rentals so unique.
Biking, boating, fishing, hiking, and riding are popular summer activities, while cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and ice-fishing are favourites come winter. Make like a local and go canoeing along the North Saskatchewan River, inner tubing on the winding Red Deer River, or strap on some skates for a game of pond hockey.
Natural and cultural phenomena abound in Alberta’s heartland. Dinosaur fossils can be seen at Dry Island Buffalo Jump Provincial Park, and Elk Island National Park, which is home to over 200 Aboriginal sites and the highest concentration of hoofed wildlife outside the Serengeti, is well worth a visit. For a dose of Canada’s ‘Wild West’, check out the Ponoka Stampede and Camrose’s annual Big Valley Jamboree country music festival, or relive the prairie life at the Ukranian Cultural Heritage Village, a living ecomuseum.
