Peace River Hotels

The friendly small town of Peace River is, as its name suggests, a quiet and traditional Canadian town, with mountain landscapes that are covered in snow during the winter months. It's a popular spot for winter sports, whether it's gliding through the cross country skiing trails, or zipping down a mountainside, and the warmer months bring lush green landscapes, fresh air, and sunshine to be enjoyed outdoors.

Things to see

Misery Mountain Ski Hill isn't nearly as gloomy as it sounds, and when you're zooming down the trails, whether it's the bunny hill or an advanced run, you'll no doubt feel anything but miserable. This friendly, unpretentious ski area offers an affordable way to enjoy the powdery snow, with skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing to enjoy on the mountains, and lessons for those who want to improve their form. The summer months are also great for outdoor fun, with the defrosted trails ideal for hiking and biking. Riverfront Park also makes the most of the rolling green hills, and there are riverfront paths where you can take a stroll and enjoy the aptly named Peace River. The park features a picnic area which families love, and there are occasional outdoor concerts where you can enjoy the scenery on a balmy summer evening. Athabasca Hall is also an important community venue, with locals putting on annual shows including musicals, family-friendly shows, and a popular dinner theater. There's also a smaller studio space, which is used as a dance studio, and often hosts art shows for talented locals.
