Prairies: Northern Alberta
Backroad Mapbooks is delighted to chart the landscape of northern Alberta. The classically Canadian region of northern Alberta boasts Grande Prairie and Fort McMurray as its largest centres. Grande Prairie sits in the west, in the heart of the northern prairie. An active metropolis of over 55,000 and growing every year, Grande Prairie’s recent growth stems from oil and gas discovery. In the east, Fort McMurray has an economy founded on the extraction of oil and gas, primarily from its oil sands. Fort McMurray’s population has boomed to over 76,000 over the last decade – and it shows no sign of stopping.
If you seek peace and solitude, you will find it in northern Alberta. This map book spans the north of Alberta, where the jagged Rocky Mountains in the south give way to gentler, sloping ranges in the north. Farther east is Canada’s northernmost prairie which tumbles into the majestic boreal forest of the north. Our maps guide you through the ancient Canadian Shield as you journey on to Lake Athabasca in the northeast. With miles of backcountry roads and untamed wilderness, there is no shortage of things to do in and outside of city centres like Fort McMurray, Grande Prairie and Athabasca – and your northern Alberta backcountry map book has it all.
