YEG Activity Book cover

Activity book for fun things to see and do at YEG

Before you travel, print off the informative activity book and flip through it with your kids. Our Airport Volunteer Ambassadors also carry these with them throughout the terminal.

It is packed with 20+ pages of travel tips and fun things to look for and do at YEG and will help you plan your waiting time. Who knows, it might even inspire you to come a little earlier than you planned!

Tuck it in your kids’ carry-on along with some crayons so they can enjoy the fun activities in the lounges or on the plane.
