Wild Rose Country is an enchanting place with towering trees, majestic mountains and rolling plains, but after dark there’s nothing more incredible than the sky above.

Luckily when it’s too cold or late at night to look up from a porch or a pathway, there are several geo domes with a comfortable bed and a clear roof fit for watching a meteor shower, the Northern lights or the constellations.

Not sure where to go? Here are just a few staycation destinations in Alberta.
