Ready to leap out of an airplane when you’re thousands of metres up? Then pack your bags and steel your nerves: if you’re looking for adventure, Edmonton has it.
If sedate activities like chess and sleeping in bore you, then come to Edmonton for an exciting trip you’ll never forget.
The city is widely known for its museums, gardens, and history, but you can also find electrifying fun for your inner daredevil. Skydiving has grown popular in Edmonton; first-timers can leap out of the plane with a trainer, and pros can take their solo jumps. If you’d rather not plummet through the clouds to the ground, Edmonton offers kilometres of trails for mountain biking and hiking. Are you more of a water lover? Try kiteboarding on the rivers, and hold on tight as the wind whips you around on your water-skimming board. Of course, you can’t mention Edmonton without thinking of all the winter fun you can have if you pack your skis or snowboard. If you still have some energy after a day of death-defying excitement, spectate at a game played by the Edmonton sport and social club, the largest coed sports league in the city.
After a long day of physical exertion, you’ll want to head back to a comfortable hotel for some R&R and a good night’s sleep. Take a hot shower when you return to your room, towel off, and grab a snack at one of many nearby restaurants. Some facilities offer a sauna or hot tub for you to soak your tired muscles in. Catch up on all the news you missed while you were embarking on your crazy adventure, then head off to sleep…to do it all again tomorrow.
Whether you’re looking for ritzy hotels in Edmonton or quiet, more sedate inns, Expedia.ca will provide you with the best discounts and rates for wherever you decide to stay.
