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.

Come see what else we have in store!
