Explore the lesser-known Rockies, off the beaten path between Central Alberta and the Mountain National Parks.
You’ll find a different kind of Rockies experience here. Our idea of nightlife is campfires and starry skies. Our best trails are often unmarked, sometimes even missing from the maps.
Adventures off the beaten path take a little more effort, but the rewards are well worth it: stunning canyons, incredible peaks, glaciers, amazing rivers and the ice bubbles of Abraham Lake.
Yes, our region is a little more rugged than the nearby National Parks or the rest of Central Alberta, but that’s part of the charm for those who love an adventure.

As a local tour company based in Nordegg we might be a little biased but we believe that our region is an exceptional place. Adventure is truly found wherever you look.
This is not a directory of all there is to do in the Nordegg and Abraham Lake region but rather a curated list by Pursuit Adventures and friends of places we like and think you’ll enjoy. We only share activities where we have had a positive first-hand experience. Sometimes things change so please let us know if you experience something that doesn’t match up with what we found.
WHERE ARE NORDEGG & ABRAHAM LAKE?
We’re at the west end of David Thompson Country, nestled between Central Alberta to the east and the Banff National Park boundary to the west. You’ll find us along the David Thompson Highway (Highway 11), east of the Icefields Parkway and west of the town of Rocky Mountain House.
