Edmonton to Red Deer Area

Be ready to explore a variety of interesting stops today as you head south.  Diverting from the main highway onto a scenic rural routing, you will soon arrive at Gull Lake.  Visit the Gull Lake Honey Company dedicated to keeping strong and healthy bee colonies and providing pure natural honey and beeswax products across Alberta, and Frontier Farms for a Bison Tour and Hayride.  With over 800 animals, mostly raised free of direct human involvement, learn how Frontier Farms has developed equipment and strategies to deal with their mostly wild herd.  These tours and informative talks will lead into some shopping time so you can taste their sweet success!

Your head filled with new information, continue to Sylvan Lake for lunch near the lake shore. Enjoy your fill of locally produced food items at a local restaurant.  Some free time after lunch gives you the opportunity to stroll along the beach, enjoying the lakeside atmosphere.

Close by, explore the making of cheese at Sylvan Star Cheese Company.  Raising dairy cattle on their family farm since 1995, they later started producing what are now some of the best award-winning Gouda cheeses in the world.  After the tour, there will be a chance to buy Gouda and other cheeses made right here in their factory.

Relax while you head back home with your new-found friends, reminiscing about all you have seen and learned today.

THERE IS PLENTY OF STORAGE SPACE UNDER YOUR MOTORCOACH FOR THOSE EXTRA PURCHASES!  YOU ARE WELCOME TO BRING A SMALL COOLER BAG.
