North West Neighbourhood

The North West Neighbourhood is one of our “adventure zones”! We stretch out to the North West as far as Rocky Mountain House and Nordegg, swing back to Sylvan Lake and Lacombe at the Highway 2 boundary, then south to Highway 27.

In “the west country” expect to come up close and personal with nature as you hike trails through the foothills and Eastern Slopes of the Rocky Mountains. Drop a fly line in some clear rivers or from a canoe on a still lake. Snowshoeing and cross-country skiing fill the wintry white months with fun and exercise.
