Whether you are a nature lover, photographer, outdoor enthusiast, hunter or fisherman, you can experience the boreal forest at its best in the Slave Lake Region.

You are sure to encounter remarkable wildlife sightings during your travels as you explore the dense spruce forests, abundant wetlands, and hidden meadows.

And of course, the fishing in the area is the best in Alberta thanks to the abundant fish populations in Lesser Slave Lake.
