Welcome to Viking!
Located south-east of Edmonton, Alberta on Highway 14 about 120 kms, the town of Viking was established in 1909. The Town celebrated its centennial in 2009.
The Town and surrounding community was settled by primarily Scandinavian settlers, hence the name "Viking". The communities cultural roots can be seen around town, steeped in history.
The restored CN Station is the Station Gallery where you can enjoy a fine cup of tea or coffee with a meal and then spend time browsing the art gallery with it's unique collection of Scandinavian Rosemaling items.
Adjacent to the station is a park development that incorporates Troll Park and the Naturalization Park. Troll Park was planned with a Scandinavian theme- trolls in Scandinavian folklore are supernatural beings represented as dwarfs. The Park also contains many Scandinavian native plants. The Naturalization Park area assists in preserving and enhancing our environment for future generations by teaching students and adults the importance of working in harmony with the environment.
