Edmonton is the capital city of the Canadian state of Alberta. It is the 5th largest city in Canada, and is popularly known as the ‘city of festivals’, due to its annual calendar of festivals which take place in the city throughout the year.

With North America’s largest mall, numerous watersports opportunities, plentiful local attractions and stunning architecture, Edmonton is one of Canada’s best-kept secrets, and the city is beginning to prove incredibly popular with North American tourists and foreign visitors alike.

Boasting a wonderfully diverse nightlife, and a terrific cityscape view from many vantage points of the city, Edmonton prides itself on being a truly family orientated holiday destination.

Arriving at Edmonton Airport

Edmonton International Airport is the primary airport serving the city of Edmonton, located in the Canadian state of Alberta. The largest airport in Canada, it is also the country’s 5th busiest by daily traffic through the terminals.

Located 26km from downtown Edmonton, taxi cabs from the airport to the city centre can be expected to charge around $35-$40 for the journey.

Being Canada’s largest airport, there is quite an unhurried atmosphere to the terminals, and airport processes tend to move very quickly with smaller than average queues. This also applies to the rental car waits, which are among the shortest in the country.

Depending on the time of year, the airport offers many dining and shopping opportunities, although several of these do not operate during quieter periods.

Driving In and around Edmonton

Driving in Edmonton is essential if wishing to visit all that the city has to offer. Public transport suffers from a lack of availability, especially to the local attractions, and taxi cabs can be fairly expensive, especially to foreign visitors.

However, while a rental car is essential to your stay, Edmonton’s major road networks are not the best in Canada and navigation routes can be confusing, with road signage being particularly misleading for foreign visitors. Therefore, an updated GPS system is a must if you require simpler navigation around the city.

Car parking in West Edmonton is quite numerous, with the area being a central hub of tourism, with many malls and dining facilities. Be warned, however, that parking opportunities are not so numerous in other parts of the city.
