If you're planning a family holiday to North America to visit the major theme parks or perhaps a ski holiday then visiting Canada’s West Edmonton Mall is a must do!
Edmonton is home to the West Edmonton Mall – North America’s biggest shopping complex. With over 800 stores and covering 48 city blocks, it has the world’s largest indoor wave pool, an amusement park with over 25 rides and attractions, an indoor triple loop rollercoaster, indoor lake, bungee tower, underwater world and everything you could possibly imagine to excite and entertain the whole family. It attracts around 28 million people a year.
Plus, families also have the unique opportunity to ride the luxurious Snow Train to Jasper with departures now available from Edmonton on VIA Rail’s panorama fully-domed cars.
Travelling through the Jasper National Park, a Canadian Rockies winter wonderland, holiday makers can bask in spectacular views of snow-laden pine forests, pristine wilderness and glacial lakes, all from the superior comfort of reclinable seats and with a 360 degree view.
Jasper is a treat for the whole family and with winter activities including ice walks through Maligne Canyon, cross country skiing over a frozen lake and dog sledding.
FAST FACT: Did you know? There is no provincial sales tax levied in the state of Alberta so there’s even more savings for shoppers!
