About Turner Valley

Snuggled against the base of the Rocky Mountains, Turner Valley is one of the gateways to the Kananaskis and a town rich with history. Known as being the birthplace of Alberta's petroleum industry, this cool little town offers a variety of exciting experiences.
From eclectic food and artisans, to agritourism, brewing and distilling, the backdrop of Kananaskis and the Rocky Mountains inspires artists, cottage industry, and farm-to-table entrepreneurs to set up in town.

The town slogan is 'Back to Nature', so it's a great place to bring your bike, kayak, horse, fishing rod, hiking boots or cross-country skis. Unparalleled scenery and friendly locals make this an ideal location to make part of your foothills story.
