You’ve come to the right place if you’re looking for the filming locations of Heartland, the number one series for horse enthusiasts. Of course, all viewers who saw the series are aware that it was shot in Canada. However, for those who enjoy the series, researching these areas in greater depth will be beneficial. The stunning Rocky Mountains serve as the show’s backdrop. The ranch location in Where is Heartland Filmed is as authentic as it gets, with the real film set tucked in the Albertan ranching region, surrounded by farms and lots of horses.

Alberta’s High River

The locations where the series was shot are so lovely that there were instances when we couldn’t focus on the series because we were distracted by the environment in some parts. The majority of Heartland was shot in and around High River, Alberta, Canada. In the series, the town of High River is referred to as Hudson as a fictional television town. It’s even the city where Lou Fleming is running for mayor. This little village in Southern Alberta even has a visitor center where filming sites may be found.

High River’s Maggie’s Diner

Maggie’s Diner is a genuine place, and it has a real building. But it’s a fictitious location. The interior is exclusively intended for filming series or movies. It’s only a set. So you can’t just go in and order something. When the show is not being filmed, you can go there and peek through the windows. Furthermore, owing to a flood that occurred on this site in 2013, the series’ seventh season was rewritten so that the series’ filming location would not move.

Park on George Lane

George Lane Park was another venue used for the show’s filming. We’ve got a significant scene here. Amy Fleming’s high school graduation ceremony takes place in this scene.

Alberta’s Bragg Creek

This town has provided the setting for some of the show’s sequences. Amy emerges from the cafe in one scene when she observes a woman singing her grandma Lyndy’s song. This image was taken in the Alberta town of Bragg Creek.

Coffee at Collosi’s.

If you wanted to go on a real Heartland tour, you’d order your coffee black, but you’d be missing out. Colosi’s prepares its caramel and vanilla syrups, so a sophisticated barista-style beverage is a way to go. One of Collosi’s outside walls is a blackboard. They provide the chalk, and a sign urges people to make their own “espresso.” Go ahead and mark it, then turn around and view Terry Winter’s Fort Spitzee wall painting. 

Back in the saddle again

Because Heartland is primarily about the horses, you can’t truly appreciate the show unless you get in the saddle, can you? Anchor D Outfitting provides trail rides and cabin rentals deep in cowboy country. This ranch is located just off scenic Highway 22, sometimes known as The Cowboy Trail, and is less than an hour’s drive from downtown Calgary. Trail rides are available twice a day, every day, and children as young as six years old can ride. Even if you don’t ride horses, it’s worth dropping by to meet some actual cowboys if you’ve never met one before. Dewey Matthews, the owner, stands out with his leather chaps and a handlebar mustache that matches Heartland’s Grandpa Jack’s. And there are usually wranglers working with the horses, who are always ready to stop for a talk and a photo if you ask nicely.
