Are you planning a trip to the Lakeland Alberta?

When you only have a short time to visit, like a weekend or just a couple days, it’s important to have a good idea of how you want to spend your time in order to maximize your experiences.

Wondering the best ways to spend 48 hours in this beautiful outdoors? Read on to learn more!

48 Hours in the Lakeland Alberta

Summer activities in the Lakeland Alberta differ greatly from wintertime activities. Your trip’s itinerary will depend quite a bit on what time of year you visit. While the summers are warm and mild, the winters are snow filled and chilly.

No matter what time of year you head to the Lakeland, there are plenty of things to do! Events and festivals take place all year long, and you always have a way to get outside and enjoy the natural surroundings.

Day 1

When you have just two days to explore a place, make sure to place all your “must do” items on the first day. Prioritizing the most important things helps give you a little wiggle room in case something comes up. You can always get to them on the second day if the first day didn’t work out for you.

If it’s summertime, the range of activities you can enjoy during your first 24 hours is seemingly endless. Possible adventures include camping, hunting, fishing, getting out on the water via canoe or kayak, and just generally enjoying the outdoors.  Looking for a little less of an adrenaline rush? Opt for fruit picking, go geocaching, or try golfing.

In the winter, you can do many of the same activities — it’ll just be colder! Fishing turns to ice fishing, biking turns to dog sledding, and hiking turns to snowshoeing.

If you’re lucky, you may even get a chance to see the breathtaking Northern Lights.

Day 2

On day two, you’ll have a chance to try out all the things you didn’t have time for on the first day. Try to find a balance between exhausting activities and restful options so that you’re not too tired to play during your final 24 hours in the Lakeland.

Maybe you go play paintball or go hiking. Horseback riding is another great activity to do in the Lakeland Alberta in the summertime. Or you can opt for biking if you prefer to pedal yourself along the scenic trails. In the winter, the Lakeland is a great place for snowmobiling, cross-country skiing or snowboarding, and ice skating.

From landmarks and historic sites to museums and Aboriginal cultural experiences, there is so much to enjoy in the Lakeland. Trying to fit it all in on one trip is impossible — so make sure you have plans to come back!
