Introduction to Edmonton

This is one city where the phrase "a river runs through it" has true meaning. Rising out of the rolling prairies in central Alberta, Edmonton straddles the North Saskatchewan River. It has a western vibe, just like its southern cousin, Calgary, but it is also the province's legislative centre. If you'd like to spend some time in this dynamic city, why not try Skyscanner's easy-to-use online program to book the perfect hotel, cheap airfare and even your rental car? Just book your trip and then come play awhile.

Things to Do in Edmonton

A visit to Fort Edmonton Park takes you back to the 1920s. Open from the middle of May through September, this recreated village features an old fashioned carnival, complete with rides, a vintage carousel and a Midway. Enjoy an authentic English tea, complete with fresh baked scones, strawberry flavoured butter and Devonshire cream, at the Johnson's café in the Hotel Selkirk. Overnight guests are welcome, but book early. It's one place in Edmonton where you'll find horse-drawn carriages in the streets, rather than cars. Built on the site of the original Fort Edmonton. Some of those historic buildings have also been restored.

If you love museums, you're in luck. Visit the Telus World of Science that features hands-on exhibits on everything from robotics to biological discoveries. Check out more than 40 vintage airplanes at the Alberta Aviation Museum or head for the Neon Sign Museum to find the colourful signage that once graced many of Edmonton's streets.

Happy strolling garden lovers! Wander the pathways through the 68-hectare William Hawrelak Park, featuring its own lake, an amphitheatre and covered picnic areas. Or, head for the 240-acre University of Alberta Botanic Garden. Themed gardens and plant collections from around the world are displayed indoors and out.

Getting To and Around Edmonton

Edmonton International Airport (YEG) is the gateway to Alberta's capital city. Located some 30 kilometres south of the city centre,, it offers an assortment of transportation options. The city is really spread out so you might want to indulge in a rental car. Car counters are near baggage claim. A taxi into the downtown core will cost you roughly $55.00 CAD, while the SkyShuttle charges $18.00 CAD for the same trip. If you're travelling light, you might consider the ETS Bus. Route 747 takes you from the airport to downtown for $5.00 CAD per person. Some hotels also offer free or low cost shuttles for guests, it's worth asking about.

Hotels in Edmonton

  • The Fairmont Hotel MacDonald, named after Canada's first Prime Minister, opened its doors in 1913. Since then it's hosted government and civilian VIPs, including King George VI and the Queen Mum in 1939. With its gingerbread trim, copper roof and panoramic views of the North Saskatchewan River and valley, it's not surprising that this hotel is now a named Municipal Heritage building. Guest rooms and common areas combine the elegance of times past with the modern amenities cherished by today's travellers.
