Welcome to Athabasca!

Located in the Athabasca River Valley, Athabasca is a rural community that is the gateway to Northern Alberta.

Walk along Rotary Way and learn about the history and significance of the mighty Athabasca River, once used for transportation during the fur trade and gold rush. Outdoor adventurers can head towards the Muskeg Creek Trail System and enjoy cross-country skiing, jogging or appreciating nature.
