With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers and using the location of where the historic<5> community of Lille once stood, the straight-line distance beginning in Lille and extending to:

  • View Our List ...
    • Edmonton, which is the Provincial Capital of Alberta, lies 271 miles [436.1 km]<1> to the north (N). If you could drive a straight line from Lille to Edmonton, with an average speed<6>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take four to five hours to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 16 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take 11 days.

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Lille) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Lille. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Lille

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Lille. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 49.6515, Longitude: -114.3958    
<2>If we have found a location and have questions about the accuracy of our information, we will simply say that the marker is 'in the vicinity'. We are not confident about the location and the position of our marker is only a rough guide. If we have too many doubts about the location, we will not include it in our database.
<3>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<4>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
<5>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Lille, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<6>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.
<7>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Lille to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<8>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 334.473 degrees.
<9>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 335.18 degrees.
<10>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 322.371 degrees.
