Fort Smith Visitor Reception Centre

Start your visit off in Fort Smith at the town’s helpful visitor reception centre. Here you’ll find tourism packages and info on local attractions, trails, and wildlife, and Wood Buffalo National Park activities and attractions. Book a historical walking tour of the community, find out the best spots to view the Aurora, or sign up for a guided hike into Wood Buffalo National Park, or down to the Slave River Rapids. You can also register at the reception centre for backcountry camping expeditions, view interpretive videos, talk with the friendly staff, and purchase some memorable NWT road trip souvenirs. Open seven days a week from May to Labour Day, and five days a week during the winter.
