What can I discover in Wood Buffalo National Park?

  • Watch for wood bison grazing by the roadside.
  • Wiggle your toes in the soothing clay at Grosbeak Lake and look for animal tracks on the salt-encrusted landscape.
  • Taste the salt that an ancient inland sea deposited at the Salt Plains.
  • Stare into the abyss of the Angus Sinkhole – a yawning gap wide enough to swallow a truck. It was formed when the top of an underground cave collapsed.
  • Swim in the aquamarine waters of Pine Lake, created when adjacent sinkholes joined together.
