Fort McMurray Northern Alberta

Fort McMurray is surrounded by hundreds of kilometres of boreal forest, which makes embracing the outdoors daily an easy goal. The 130 km of trails in the city are great for cross-country skiing, casual strolls, cycling or just getting lost. ● Lights out, look up: Fort Mac is one of the best places in this hemisphere to check out nature's light show that is the northern lights. Late September to early May give you the best view. ● Catch your own: Make Fort McMurray your hub for fishing and fly-in hunting trips.

Fort McMurray Heritage Shipyard

Fort McMurray, Alberta

For decades, Fort McMurray was a transportation hub. In the spring, railcars would arrive to unload their wares, which were then transferred to ships that travelled up the Athabasca River, distributing goods to remote communities as far north as the Arctic. Heritage Shipyard celebrates and preserves this essential part of the region's past with historical vessels, two train cars, a collection of artifacts and the Jack “Torchy” Peden Centre and gift shop.
