Indigenous

Indigenous tourism reveals a path towards reconciliation through sustainable, ethical travel and cultural experiences. When you spend time learning the traditions, languages and stories of Alberta and BC First Nations, you gain a deeper connection to the land and its people.

Indigenous people in Canada have lived and traveled on these lands for time immemorial. Their understanding and connection to their homelands will enrich your perspective.

On your next adventure, make time to connect to the local Indigenous community. The experience will transform you!
