Viking

Hwy 14

On June 23 & 24, check out the Cloverlodge Stampede, held just north of the golf course. With many kids activities, this outstanding rodeo has been running for 39 years. In August, you'll want to make plans to take in the Brettzky’s Hockey Challenge and the Viking Museum’s Pancake Breakfast & 8th Annual Car Show on August 12. In October it’s a very scary fun time at the Haunted Museum - this year’s theme Alien Abduction!

OUTDOORS Experience Viking's civic pride and the beauty of the streets, boulevards, and gardens, or take a stroll down the historic walking trails. Pick up a map at the Viking Museum or Visitor Centre.

SOUTHEAST OF EDMONTON

If you are extending your stay, try the fully-serviced RV park or stay at one of the nearby motels. Allow enough time for a round of golf at the Viking Golf & Country Club. A little east of town off Highway 619 lies Camp Lake Park, another popular campground with a boat launch.

EAT SHOP Viking is home to many unique businesses that make it a great road trip destination. Viking Meats, for example, is a great place to stop for homemade sausages, groceries, and even fireworks. Java Blossom Flowers on mainstreet carries beautiful gifts, and even has a cappuccino bar – making it a great place for a break between stops. For homemade pizza and burgers plan to eat at Viking Burger Queen. Visitor Information Centre at the CN Station Gallery & Arts Centre, downtown. Open April-November 780-336-3466

An active, beautiful community with a rich Scandinavian history.
