The clubs of the Volkssport Association of Alberta hold organized walks in Alberta approximately twice a week all year round. With clubs located throughout Alberta, you can walk the mountains, the cities, the towns and enjoy the vastness of this great province. Each club has unique walks to offer, and  history to be learned.  
 
 
The Canadian Volkssport Federation along with the American Volkssport Association are the largest organizations of walking clubs in the Americas. Their 600 clubs host non-competitive walks which are open to the public. 
 
So whether you want to walk locally, around the province, across the country or around the world there will be a walk for you!
