Peace River

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!
