Discover the Hoofbeats and Homesteads that made our region the amazing place it is today! Spend a summer day exploring Alberta’s natural and cultural history & create your own day-trip to Elk Island National Park and the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village!
Start your morning with the Hoofbeats of the wildlife at Elk Island National Park. Try a tranquil canoe trip or a guided hike in the gentle wilderness of our closest national park. Learn about Elk Island’s conservation legacy and perhaps even see some wildlife! For lunch, enjoy an authentic Ukrainian meal just 5 minutes down Highway 16 from Elk Island at the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village. After lunch, spend the remainder of your afternoon at the Homestead, learning how to make pyrohy (perogies) or challenging yourself in the ‘It’s an Amazing Race’ program, an adventure inspired by the experiences of Alberta’s Ukrainian settlers.
