When you visit, you’ll find that there's so much to explore and to enjoy. Stop by one of Canada’s largest recreation centres, get your sweat on at Canada's largest outdoor green gym, and take a stroll the stunning Birchwood Trails—and the best part is, you can do it all in one day.

On winter nights, residents look to the heavens and are rewarded with dazzling displays as the northern lights dance among the stars. A short drive out of the city, and you'll see them even more clearly.

Fort McMurray offers residents and visitors endless opportunities to enjoy extraordinary lifestyles. But when you're here, that's just normal.
