Le café, l’artisan fromager, le confectionneur de cocktails. Non, ce n’est pas une comptine... c’est plutôt un après-midi à Vermilion. Les gâteries de l’après-midi se partagent souvent mieux entre amis. Par exemple, les fraises au chocolat sur pain rôti, un assortiment de fromages raffinés ou un cocktail à 15 heures.

Le sourire fendu jusqu’aux oreilles, l’eau éclaboussant derrière lui, Josh Meredith se promène en Sea-Doo. Nikki Hallows le suit de près, traverse son sillage et met de la pression sur son moteur pour s’élancer dans les airs. Le bruit des moteurs se fait entendre pendant qu’ils vont et viennent sur le lac Baptiste, dans le comté d’Athabasca.

On a normal summer day, enjoying his passion for dinosaur fossil hunting in the valleys and river bottoms of the Pipestone Creek near Grande Prairie in 1974, Al Lakusta unearthed something that would transform the landscape of paleontology in Alberta. His discovery of one of the most massive fossil beds would put the Peace Region in northwestern Alberta on the dinosaur map.

Does your social media timeline need a boost of positivity and inspiration? These awesome people on social media are pumping out the Zen content. 

From dog-friendly hikes, to a surprise encounter with wildlife in the mountains, to getting up close to a prairie staple, we're getting our fill of cute-meets-Zen in western Canada.

How can we act as good allies when we travel and explore in Western Canada?

With all of us staying home from work and school because of the pandemic, we have more free time on our hands than ever before. While some work from home and others try their hand at new hobbies, like baking and painting, our canine companions are living in the lap of luxury.

After weeks of social distancing and isolation, we’re all in need of some fresh ideas to stay optimistic and inspired at home.

We’ve seen a lot of changes since the pandemic hit. Changes to how we work, how we play, how we support local businesses and even how we “travel.” Virtual experiences are on the rise and that includes some pretty innovative experiences right here in Alberta. 

The Town of Vermilion, in partnership with ZenSeekers, has launched the first-ever #VermilionOnline. It’s a virtual festival showcasing experiences and businesses in the charming rural town of Vermilion, located just two hours east of Edmonton in central Alberta.
