Explore Central Alberta

We know that sometimes you’d rather head out on your own. That’s why you’ll find our trail guides and other adventures we think you’ll love at explorecentralalberta.ca.

We Are Pursuit

We’re an independent, locally owned tour company established in 2010 and based in Red Deer, Alberta.

Our goal is to inspire you to play outside, helping you find your adventure and exploring Central Alberta to discover the food, artisans and natural beauty of the region. Whether it’s a winter sightseeing tour exploring the ice bubbles of Abraham Lake, heading out on a day hike away from the crowds or spending an evening snowshoeing under the stars, we’re here to help you find your adventure.

For us adventure isn’t about climbing mountains. Adventure is about doing things that are new and different for each of us, doing things that can be a little scary but that also make us curious to explore further.

As far as we’re concerned, food is part of all great outdoor adventures. It keeps us fueled on the trail, helps us slow down to enjoy the moment over lunch, and gives us an excuse to get together and share the memories we’ve made along the way. That’s why we include great local food in everything we do, from the tours to our  Basecamp + Cafe in Capstone at Riverlands on the edge of downtown Red Deer and Waskasoo Park.

Because adventure is found wherever you look…

Come For A Visit

We're located in Capstone at Riverlands, near the trails of Waskasoo Park and Downtown Red Deer. Stop by to plan your next adventure, rent the gear you need and grab a bite with friends. 

While you're in the neighbourhood make sure to check out some of our great neighbours like Wild Brewing Co, Purearth Organics, DOSE Coffee and Troubled Monk Brewery.

You'll find us at #10 5579 47 Street in Cronquist Business Park.
