A Different Kind of Rockies Experience on Where Rockies

Explore the lesser-known Rockies, off the beaten path with Nordegg and Abraham Lake. You’ll find a different kind of mountain experience here, where the idea of nightlife is campfires and starry skies and the best trails are often unmarked, sometimes even missing from the maps.

During the summer, soar in the sky with a sightseeing helicopter flight with Rockies Heli Canada. Combine this experience with a backcountry adventure, including hiking, fishing, horseback riding, or glamping. This is one bucket-list adventure you won’t want to miss.

Only 15 minutes east of the Icefields Parkway, enjoy a scenic float trip down the North Saskatchewan River with Nordegg Adventures or try a guided hike to a gorgeous, out-of-the-way corner of the Canadian Rockies.

Stay a while at Aurum Lodge nestled amidst pristine nature with breathtaking views of mountains and the lake. Relax in a lodge room or vacation rental, then treat yourself to a delightful meal at Golden Peaks Restaurant.

Book with Expanse Cottages and stay in the wild Rockies. Whether you want a great base camp for your adventures, or to settle in and immerse yourself in nature, these cabins offer the comfort and convenience to do both.

Discover Alberta’s hidden gem! Stay at the full-service David Thompson Resort and experience genuine Canadian hospitality. Choose the hotel, campground, RV trailers, or cabins.

Here, the region is a little more rugged than the nearby National Parks, but that’s part of the charm for those who love an adventure. When visiting the Canadian Rockies this summer, don't forget to check out the wilder side of the mountains with Nordegg and Abraham Lake!
