At the Airport

There are all sorts of classic fast food and sit-down places from pizza to sushi and cocktails accessible right inside the Edmonton airport.  The free shuttle will take you to many other restaurants.

Halo Bar and Bistro – Fan favorite featuring local cuisine and many drink options. Located right inside the Renaissance Airport Hotel where you will be staying on your southbound journey home from the Lodge.



Forget anything? There are a host of factory outlet stores that can take care of outdoor gear and clothing.


How about a round of golf? The Red Tail Golf Course is at the airport, literally across the road from our charter hanger. Our friends at North Cariboo will store your clubs during the time you are at the Lodge as well!

Racetrack & Casino

Want to horse around? The Century Mile Racetrack and Casino right next to the airport will provide plenty of excitement!

Auto Racing Track

If horses aren’t fast enough, many summer evenings there is also car racing as well, but we love the horses.
