Take in the prairie farmland surrounding Edmonton on this full day study tour of two of Alberta’s historical gems. The tour will begin at the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village, offering a behind the scenes look at this highly successful living history site and highlighting one of Alberta’s most significant immigration stories. Alberta is home to the largest Ukrainian population outside of the Ukraine, so prepare to be treated to a traditional Ukrainian lunch before the bus departs.

 

After lunch, the tour will head to the Reynolds-Alberta Museum, in Wetaskiwin, where delegates will learn about the impact of technological change on transportation, aviation, agriculture, and industry from the 1890s to present day. The afternoon will highlight a variety of vintage automobiles, motorcycles, bicycles, agricultural implements, industrial equipment, and aircraft. At the end of the “Highway through Time” is a country rustic dinner featuring Alberta fare and beverages before returning to the hotel.
