Local Attractions

While in the County of Smoky Lake take advantage of the many opportunities in the area: 

  • Visit the expanded Métis Crossing and enjoy a meal in their new facility overlooking the North Saskatchewan River. Métis Crossing is now home to a herd of rare white bison. The revered animal, known as “bufloo” in Michif, which is the language of the Métis people, have not roamed the area since 1865. White bison have long been honoured by First Nations and Métis peoples, and they return to these traditional lands alongside woods bison, plains bison, elk, white elk and Percheron horses. Their return marks the establishment of the new Visions, Hopes, and Dreams Métis Crossing Wildlife Park.
