  • The Métis Crossing Winter Family package includes two signature experiences

    Visions, Hopes, and Dreams at Métis Crossing Wildlife Tour

    The Visions, Hopes and Dreams at Métis Crossing Wildlife Park offers guests a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the beauty of Métis heritage species. The wildlife park is home to rare white bison, wood bison, plains bison, elk, and Percheron horses.

    The bison, or “bufloo” in Michif, the language of the Métis, last roamed these hills in 1865. The historical relationship between the Métis people and bison stems from the bison hunt that brought thousands of Métis people together each spring and fall. Through the gathering of these large communities, the Métis Nation took shape with the development of their own laws, democratic, and judicial systems.

    Experience includes:

    • A 1.5 – 2 hour guided tour with transportation
    • An educational experience highlighting the significance of these heritage species to the Métis people
    • The opportunity to enter the paddocks alongside the animals for an intimate view of the animals

    The exploration of the Métis people’s connection with the land is an essential element of understanding traditional Métis life. This tour is more than an opportunity to see rare heritage species up-close. The Visions, Hopes and Dreams Wildlife Park tour is a cultural and historical tour paired with a legendary wildlife experience.

    Tales from the Trapline Experience

    Tales from the Trapline is a 3-hour immersive Indigenous experience that explores Métis traditional winter activities and skills on a historic Métis river lot farm.

    Strap on a set of snowshoes, set a snare, build a survival shelter, and learn a traditional art as you create your own unique and beautiful keepsake.

    This experience is led by a Métis guide and will provide participants with an opportunity to explore the cultural significance of life on the land and the traditional Métis way of life.

    • A 3-hour guided experience
    • Snowshoeing on a traditional Métis river lot, overlooking the North Saskatchewan River (Snowshoes included)
