Welcome to Fort Smith!

The Chipewyan name for the region is Thebacha, which means beside the rapids. Fort Smith is located next to the magnificent Slave River and is the main gateway to Wood Buffalo National Park.

A trip to Fort Smith is one steeped in history, beauty and adventure. Our rapids along the Slave River are world class, our Dark Sky Preserve is the largest on Earth and Wood Buffalo National Park is thriving with unique wildlife, such as the protected and majestic whooping crane.

In summer the land abounds with birds, fish and animals. The trails are endless, and fences are rare. In winter it becomes a peaceful oasis of sparkling snow, clear skies and Northern lights.

We look forward to meeting you and hope you enjoy your stay!
