Explore Nordegg & Abraham Lake

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.
