Beginning on Sunday, March 22, 2020, at 11:59 p.m., we will suspend all our international and transborder flights. This suspension follows Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s announcement imposing travel restrictions for all flights entering Canada to reduce the spread of COVID-19. The suspension will be in place until September 13, 2020.
We will be providing regular updates on all our channels and are reaching out directly to these impacted travellers via email with more specific information.
Edmonton provides numerous fun activities and outdoor attractions for tourists of all kinds. Every year in Edmonton there are more than 30 festivals, including 10 days of the International Fringe Theatre Festival. Don't miss the chance to visit North America's largest shopping mall, the West Edmonton Mall. Over 800 shops and a theme park and water park are inside. Look around Old Strathcona for shops with unique clothing and crafts.
If you need to get into town from the airport, you’ve got lots of options! Edmonton Skyshuttle provides transportation to and from the airport, or you can catch Route 747, a bus service from the airport to Century Park Station (where you can also catch the LRT). Red Arrow also provides transportation from many surrounding cities.
Once you’re in the city, you can take advantage of their extensive bus and LRT service – you can either pay per trip or purchase a day pass. Use their handy trip planner here! They also have all major car rental companies, as well as Uber in case you want to catch a ride in a hurry.
Did you know that Edmonton is home to North America’s largest mall – West Edmonton Mall! Spanning the equivalent of 48 city blocks, this mall has it all – the world’s largest indoor wave pool, a pirate ship, a roller coaster, live penguins, mini golf, restaurants, a hotel, and of course – tons of shopping! You could easily spend a few days exploring what this world-class mall has to offer.
Take advantage of a free walking tour in the summer, hosted by the Friends of Royal Alberta Museum Society, or check out a food festival, concert or movie in one of the many city parks. Edmonton also has over 200km of bike and walking trails to explore, so see how far your legs can take you! Edmonton is also home to a handful of Art Walks, where you can take a stroll and see art in action.
