Salt Plains Viewpoint and Day-Use Area - Wood Buffalo National Park

Salt Plains Viewpoint and Day-Use Area - Wood Buffalo National Park

The Salt Plains are a unique combination of geology, plants, wildlife and climate. Located 25 kms west of Fort Smith in Wood Buffalo National Park, the flat salt-encrusted landscape covers 370 square kilometers. Here, salt-saturated water rises to the surface and evaporates, leaving layers of salt behind. In some places, brilliant white salt mounds, up to one metre in height can be found.
