Tour itinerary

Day 1-2

Edmonton, Towns of Mander and Vergevil

We arrive in Edmonton, the main city of the province of Alberta, and check into a hotel. After a short rest, we will enjoy a walk in the center and take a sightseeing tram across the High Level bridge. A little more than two centuries ago, these were wild lands, until the British fur traders established their settlement here. Walking in the center, do not try to resist the famous local street food - french fries in a sauce of young cheese. For dinner we head to one of the many ethnic restaurants. And do not forget to order a Caesar cocktail - another highlight of Canadian cuisine! 

You have probably heard that Canada is a country of immigrants. The next day we will be able to feel like the first Ukrainians who arrived in Canada in 1891. We visit the Ukrainian cultural heritage open-air museum (1 hour on the way) and step into the houses of Ivan Pylypiv and other first immigrants from Ukraine, as well as visit the old Ukrainian church and school. After lunch, we will visit two "Ukrainian" towns - Mander and Vergevil. Let`s explore the quiet streets, observe historical buildings, see a huge monument to sausage and the second largest pysanka monument in the world. In the evening we return to Edmonton.

Day 3-4

Bicycle ride in parks, St. Anna's Lake, Beavers and bisons of Elk islands park

After breakfast, we rent bicycles and ride around William Hawrelak park. It was named after the Ukrainian mayor of Edmonton, who was elected to this post three times! We reach the North Saskatchewan River and find ourselves in Fort Edmonton Historical Park. Here we can look at the restored homes of indigenous peoples, learn about the arrival of the first Europeans, and also take a walk among the houses restored from photographs of the 1920s. In the afternoon we return back, stop for a picnic in one of the parks on the way. During this day we will ride bicycles up to 20 kilometers.

The next morning, we leave for St. Anna's Lake (1 hour on the way). Alberta residents love to relax and fish here. And nearby is a very unusual temple of indigenous peoples - with a unique combination of Native American and Christian symbols. After lunch we head to Elk Island Park (an hour and a half on the way). These islands boast huge beaver settlements and we might even meet bisons! In the evening we return to Edmonton.

Day 5

Drumheller dinosaurs park

Everyone has heard about the immigrants of Canada, but what do you know about the dinosaurs that lived here millions of years ago? Canada is also known for one of the largest dinosaur cemeteries in the world! This place is called Drumheller, and we will get there by minibus in about 3 hours. Let`s explore the colorful hills, looking for hints of the mysterious prehistoric creatures in the stones. And some of the rocks here are sheared by the winds in such unusual shapes that they even resemble dinosaurs. 

Next, we head to the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology. The remains of more than 500 dinosaurs of 39 species are stored here, and we can observe the work of scientists who study these creatures in real time. In the evening we get to Calgary (1.5 hours on the way), and check into the hotel.
