Rocky Mountain House National Historic Site is a fine example of the fur trade in the west. Discover a historic trading post along the North Saskatchewan River and immerse yourself in stories of Indigenous Peoples and legendary explorers.

Le lieu historique national Rocky Mountain House est un bel exemple de la traite des fourrures dans l'Ouest. Explorez un poste de traite historique établi le long de la rivière Saskatchewan Nord et plongez dans les récits de peuples autochtones et d’explorateurs légendaires. Découvrez des expériences d’interprétation, les vestiges des fondations de quatre forts, des bisons des plaines, des sentiers de randonnée et de vélo des guides-interprètes du patrimoine sympathiques et la boutique de cadeaux Trading Post. Restez encore un peu et faites l’essai du camping patrimonial dans un tipi, une tente de trappeur métis ou une cabane de piégeage.
