The Road Trip Alberta team is comprised of a group of enthusiastic Albertans who have lived in all corners of the province. It is led by two travelers and bloggers who were raised in Alberta, circled the world several times, and then returned to see more of their home province.
Dalene and Pete Heck, who also blog at HeckticTravels.com and are co-founders of HMI (Hecktic Media Inc.), left for nearly eight years to pursue their dreams of worldwide travel. Along the way, they amassed numerous awards for their exceptional writing and photography, including: National Geographic Travelers of the Year, two BlogHer Voice of the Year acknowledgments for Dalene, and once a medalist for Best Independent Travel Blog by the North American Journalists Association.
They returned to Alberta in the fall of 2016 and turned their penchant for exploration to their home province. They have traveled almost every highway within – from Peace River to Lethbridge, Fort McMurray to Waterton Lakes National Park, and everything in between. Now, joined by other Albertans who have the same fondness for their home, they are eager to present the best of their province to the world.
