Relax around a campfire and enjoy the spectacular night skies. With no street lights in the area you get a front row seat to the brilliant constellations.
There is something for everyone out here. Swing into history and enjoy incredible views at the Historic Nordegg Golf Course or dive deeper into history at the Historic Mine site and Historic town site. See Alberta's first CIBC building along with other beautiful old buildings from the era.
There are numerous lakes in the area offering ample fishing and paddling opportunities.

If you would rather gain some altitude then take advantage of the many climbing spots and via ferrata in the area.
If you are staying with us during the colder months a trip to see Crescent Falls beautifully crystallized and the stunning frozen bubbles at Abraham Lake are a must! Cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and ice climbing can be enjoyed in the area. A toboggan hill and outdoor ice rink can be found next to the community hall.
