The town of High Level sits in northern Alberta, right on the intersection of two major highways and on a ‘high’ area of land - hence the name. It’s a small and tight-knit community of people who love the outdoors, the wilderness, and that small-town atmosphere. One of the best things about the region is that it’s far enough north to enjoy reasonably regular shows from the Northern Lights, making it quite an accessible location to view this phenomenal event. When you pick up a High Level Airport car rental on arrival, you’ll have the freedom of chasing these lights across the sky - as well as seeing the many attractions and things to do in town.
If you are looking to explore outside of the town, you can follow the motorway three hours south to Peace River for a scenic drive and plenty of outdoor activities and hikes once you arrive. Another option is heading west just 1.5 hours to visit Rainbow Lake, which was named after the nearby arc-shaped lake and is now a small and friendly town with a golf course and opportunities for hiking, quadding, skating, and curling.

The terminal has a small cafe, several office spaces, an ATM, and free Internet access. You’ll find the car rental desks inside the main building so you can pick up your keys and hit the road as soon as you arrive.
