Canít decide what to get or what excursion to buy? Why not purchase a GIFT
CERTIFICATE and let your recipient choose. The perfect gift every time.
Great for Christmas or any other occasion.
Alberta Prairie gift certificates can be issued
in any denomination, although most are for a full value of trips, never
expire and offer complete flexibility as to when your guests might like to
ride. Certificates are very popular here at Alberta Prairie and they are
made available on a regular basis.
We generally recommend
purchasing a certificate with a value equal to one of our "Country Dinner"
(A) excursions, the most popular and frequent of all the trips we do. The
2017 adult fare for County Dinners is $105 plus G.S.T. and this
particular type of excursion is most likely the one that your guests will
book. However, the full face value of a certificate can be applied to any
trip, even those which are more expensive. Should your guests decided on a
Newfoundlander, Steak Barbecue or an APST Limited Special excursion, they can
use their certificate and simply pay any difference. If you decide to
purchase a certificate equal to the value of one of these higher end trips
you are also welcome to do so.
Please give us a call during regular business hours at 1-800-282-3994 and
staff here will look after you, answer any questions you might have, and
issue a certificate. Our office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to
The complete proposed operating schedule for
2017 will be up on the web soon and will be available in printed after the
first of the year..
The destination for Alberta Prairie excursions is Big Valley.
This community was the divisional point for the Canadian Northern Railway
in the early 1900s. Feature attractions include restored railway station,
roundhouse interpretive centre, St. Edmund Church and Jimmy Jock Boardwalk.
Because of the nature of what it is we offer Alberta Prairie Railway is not
able to provide alternative menu choices. Over the years what we have found is
that guests find the buffet more than amble with lots of choices. In special
circumstances, and as an alternative to the meat dish offered, guests can
request a high-quality vegetable burger by pre-ordering at time of booking.
