Canada / FULLY ESCORTED TOURING 5 Day Winter Road to Canadian Adventure Bicentennial Museum, Fort Chipewyan Located on the southwest tip of Lake Athabasca, Fort Chipewyan is a perfect place to leave your daily stresses behind and experience the remote beauty, history and culture of one of Alberta’s most isolated and northern communities. Established as a trading post in 1788 by the Northwest Trading Company, Fort Chipewyan is Alberta’s oldest settlement. Fort Chipewyan is so remote, that it can only be accessed by land in the winter on a 280-kilometre road made entirely of snow and ice. On this adventure vacation you will follow the winter road through the unique and amazing landscapes of the boreal forest and sand dunes and travel over frozen rivers, marshes and the vast Peace-Athabasca River Delta. With a bit of luck, you may see hawks, owls, moose, bison and lynx along the way.
