Fly To Grande Prairie, Canada
Grande Prairie is the 7th largest city in Alberta, Canada and got its name from the impressive prairie, which surrounds the city. It has a beautiful natural landscape as well as many great sights and must-do outings.
Soon after 1958, Grande Prairie was named Home of the Trumpeter Swan – Grande Prairie is part of the swans’ migration route and the summer nesting ground for these birds. Grande Prairie has grown significantly over the last 15 years, and the locals are particularly proud of their “Peace County”, which includes the Prairie, the Rocky Mountains, the Boreal Forest and the Peace River.
Tourist information can be found at Centre 2000 and the various museums offer much insight into its heritage. Grande Prairie is perfect for travellers who love the outdoors and with many camping, fishing, hunting and hiking spots, make sure to include these in your daily itinerary.
