Edmonton, AB
Hacker Tip
Edmonton is one of the best places in Canada to catch the northern lights from September to April. Head to Elk Island National Park for some of the best vantage points. Or, to escape the cold, duck into the West Edmonton mall — the largest in North America, complete with theme parks, indoor skating rink and not one but four movie theatres.

Calgary, AB
Hacker Tip
Start your trip in downtown Calgary, with its world-class restaurants, museums, shopping and entertainment. Then, when you need some wildlife, drive an hour and a half outside the city to reach Banff National Park. Truly the best of both worlds.
