Writing-on-stone Provincial Park is the most unique destination in Alberta

Alberta is a special province with incredible sites and rich history – although few places as instructive as Áísínai’pi or Writing-On-Stone Provincial Park, a sacred and awe-inspiring site and border campground of the Great Plains.

Located 3.5 hours northeast of Calgary, this beautiful destination has been declared a World Heritage Site by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and is highly regarded for its breathtaking views .

Here visitors can have a one-of-a-kind camping experience surrounded by hoodoos, unique rock formations and towering trees, but that’s certainly not all.

Besides swimming, hiking and lounging, guests can also take a walking tour where they will learn about the cultural significance of the area.

Dating back as far as 5,000 years, Writing-On-Stone houses a collection of rock carvings and pictographs detailing the daily activities, spirits, battles and journey of the Blackfoot (Siksikáíítsitapi) people.

These 50 sites range from unique sculptures to hundreds of entrances and have become a popular place for traditional ceremonies, vision quests and prayer – so while worth visiting, it is extremely important to be respectful.
