Peace River

Two hours northeast of Grande Prairie, five hours northwest of Edmonton. 

Nestled into the spectacular Peace River Valley, the Town of Peace River can be enjoyed in any season, no matter your yen. Enjoy magnificent views from several lookout points, stay in one of several full-service motels, hotels, or unique bed and breakfasts, savour the fare at the fine restaurants, lounges, or craft breweries, hike on trails weaving through the hills, or view the local wildlife — often on the other side of the street!

“There’s a reason they call it God’s Country.  I’m thankful my pioneer grandparents found their way to the Mighty Peace.”

– Aaron Sorensen

Don’t miss the several annual events such as the World Jet Boat Races, Paddle the Peace, the Mighty Peace Hill Climb snowmobile rally, and the Peacefest music festival. With plenty of parks, campgrounds, a ski hill, and two golf courses within easy driving distance, as well as boutiques, spas, and gift shops, in one of the most beautiful settings Alberta has to offer, the town has your next vacation written all over it.
