The Nordegg & Abraham Lake region is our base for adventure. It’s a place that offers a different kind of Rockies experience where 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, but that’s part of the charm for those who love an adventure. And we’re here to help. Our focus is on the outdoor lifestyle, from soft adventures to gear, food and culture.
We love working with members of the media, creators and production companies to share the stories of our region.
