region |alberta north The North Remembers Discover natural beauty and living history Dancing northern lights, never-ending boreal forests, golden sand dunes, wild herds of bison — the north offers endless opportunities for unforgettable adventures. Hike through the backcountry, trace the footsteps of early fur trad- ers, or discover the legends of Indigenous cultures. Explore the dunes near Fort McMurray or the provincial parks near Grande Prairie, and discover the joys of swimming, paddling and fishing in one of the many rivers and lakes. Summer brings with it extra-long days and fantastic festivals, so take advantage of the daylight and celebrate with the locals all night long. 70
