La Crete is a vibrant community that gives visitors a refreshing break from the hustle of a large city. When you visit La Crete, you will experience a community rich in culture and proud of its heritage. La Crete is proud of its agricultural roots and continues to work as the Agricultural Centre of the North. This community consists, in great proportions, of farmers and loggers but continues to expand in all other industries.
Driving to La Crete is a large part of the experience as it includes a relaxing cruise on a large ferry that glides across the flowing river. Or, in the winter, crossing an ice bridge is an exciting experience for many visitors to the region. Crossing the Peace River, regardless of the season is a memorable experience that many tourists enjoy each year. La Crete can be accessed by three routes; one from the north via Fort Vermilion, the next from the south by way of the La Crete Ferry at Tompkins Landing which crosses the Peace River and connects to the Mackenzie Highway, and the third from the east by Highway 88. For an unbeatable heritage tour, check out both Fort Vermilion and La Crete.
The Hamlet of La Crete is of varied terrain. While there are a number of lakes and rivers surrounding La Crete, there are also farms and fields that stretch out as far as the eye can see. Most noting are the alluring Buffalo Head Hills to the south that loom 2000 feet above the surrounding farmland. Take a drive to the top of these hills and enjoy the day strolling down endless trails, and eating at designated picnic areas. From the crest of the hills, the hamlet can be seen stretching out from the base and the entire region can be seen in a magnificent, picturesque view.
