Welcome to the Volkssport Association of Alberta Website!
The clubs of the Volkssport Association of Alberta hold organized walks in Alberta approximately twice a week during the summer slowing down in the winter. 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, also check out biking, skiing or snow shoe routes in the season.
Volkssport is an international organization, so whether you want to walk locally, around the province, across the country or around the world there will be a walk for you!
