Lakes & Rivers

From canoeing to jet boating to stand up paddle boarding, from fly fishing to ice fishing - there is no shortage of ways to enjoy the pristine lakes and rivers across the region.

Lakes & Rivers

Fort McMurray Wood Buffalo boasts some of the most pristine lakes and rivers in the province, and we take full advantage of it. Summers are the best time to be out in or on the water - paddle boarding, fishing, jet-boating or canoeing. Winters boast just as many opportunities for activities like ice fishing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and cross country skiing.

Pro tip - the region’s lakes provide an exceptional vantage point for viewing and capturing photos of the famed Northern Lights!
