If you have recently moved to Edmonton or are planning to visit this winter, Edmonton comes alive in the winter season. Here is a list of the eight best winter activities in Edmonton:

Elk Island National Park

See the hundreds of Bison roaming and grazing in the park. Also, this is a great place to view the Aurora Borealis and the beautiful starry skies at night.

Fat Biking

Wide road tires on the bikes make it easy to navigate snow. Tour the River Valley by fat bike with over 150 km of trails, which are all plowed and shoveled in the winter.

Skiing and Snowboarding

There are three ski resorts in the Edmonton area to choose from. Whether you are a beginner or advanced, there are hills for everyone.

University of Alberta Botanic Gardens

The Botanical Gardens turn into a winter wonderland with lights and sculptures. You can also cross-country ski through the paths in the gardens.

Tubing the Snow Wave

This is a popular spot with four tube chutes, which are open daily. The tube chutes overlook the River Valley.

Art Galleries

The Arts District is in downtown Edmonton and has ten art galleries, from traditional to contemporary. Many of the galleries have interactive experiences for the whole family.

Farmers Market

The market is filled with local artisan-made clothing and merchandise, as well as homegrown produce.

West Edmonton Mall

The mall has forty-eight city blocks of shopping and entertainment with 800 stores, hotels, restaurants, mini golf courses, a zoo, an indoor waterpark, skating rink and a roller coaster!
