M.D. of Peace No. 135

Just west of Peace River on Highway 2, 80 minutes northeast of Grande Prairie. 

Picture rolling hills, idyllic lakes, and scenic vistas, all bounded on the southern edge by the Mighty Peace herself, and you’ve got the M.D. of Peace — an ideal place for a northern getaway.

“The Trail winds along the hills down the Peace River Valley along the mighty Peace River, the scenery is awesome, stop at various market gardens along the way for fresh fruit and produce. Take the ferry ride across the river and back. We like to park our car and walk onto the ferry. The view of the river and surrounding hills is spectacular. There’s many other historical spots to stop as well.”

Dianne P, Fairview, Trip Advisor

With museums, parks, campgrounds, market gardens, and even a ferry, there’s something to do in every season. Cheer your favourite team at Lac Cardinal during the Alberta Pond Hockey Championships in winter or live history at the Lac Cardinal Museum Pioneer Day celebration in summer. Fish in the Peace River, stay in one of several unique B&Bs, paddle the Peace on a tour from Peace Cabins and Outdoors, so join the annual Paddle the Peace group paddle summer event. Come see what else we have in store!
