Join Alberta Food Tours for a 4 day / 3-night jam-packed road trip to all the best places in Southern Alberta to Eat Alberta First! This stay and play Alberta “eatcation” will see you discovering the makers behind some of the province's most delicious foods. You’ll meet cheesemakers, charcuteries, farmers, ranchers, chefs, and tourism’s most creative entrepreneurs. Tastings include long table dinners, farmstead cheeses, cured meats, and prosciutto delicacies, Alberta’s signature foods, Hungarian and Japanese heritage foods and of course craft beverages made with the best of Alberta grains. We’ll visit cafes and coffee houses, cookhouses and breweries and explore life on cattle and bison ranches and a goat farm too. There’ll be access to outdoor pursuits and events and tastings that only Alberta Food Tours can obtain due to their long-standing relationships with farmers, ranchers, and tourism partners.
