Visitor Information

Edmontonians love to be active, celebrate diversity, and enjoy life. Edmonton boasts a remarkably beautiful river valley, lined with kilometres (and miles!) of trails. Our culinary scene is creative, diverse, and award-winning. Our culture is vibrant and varied with over 50 annual festivals celebrating live music, theatre, art, sports, winter, and a whole lot more. We are enthusiastic about sports and living actively. We are the city that supports its business and thrives on ingenuity. We are doers. We have fun. We embrace our seasons and get outside all year long. We can’t wait for you to join us and see for yourself why Edmonton is profiled again and again in international media as a must-visit destination.

When you visit Edmonton, you’ll want to add on extra days to enjoy our city and province. We encourage you to take a look at Explore Edmonton and plan your trip. Take some time to relax and enjoy our city. Also, we’re only 4 hours from the magnificent Rocky Mountains and one hour from Elk Island National Park.

We’ve put together some pages of information to help you with travel plans.
