Rocky Mountain House National Historic Site is one of Canada’s fine examples of how the fur trade helped shape the nation. Enjoy exhibits, walk through archaeological remains of the four forts, get hands on experience with Métis skills of the fur trade. Stay awhile and camp in Indigenous trapper’s tents and tipis.
Rocky Mountain House is the site of so much history – the story of the fur trade, First Nations, wars on the plains and more. Hike interpretive trails, take photos of the bison herd or try on period costumes in the exhibit gallery. Learn to make bannock, traditional games and dream catchers or picnic near the play fort. Sit under the stars before fading to sleep in a Métis Trappers tent.
At Rocky Mountain House, visitors can explore several 19th century fur trade forts, and learn the story of the rivalry between HBC and NWC.
