The Boreal region is characterized by vast expanses of mixed-wood forests of coniferous spruce, pine and larch, and deciduous poplar and birch. These stands are broken by numerous lakes, muskegs and rivers. In the extreme northeast of the province, the Canadian Shield of Precambrian rock is exposed, harbouring many clear-water lakes.

Travel

You can reach the major centres in the Boreal region via all-season highways. Regularly scheduled flights run from the Edmonton International Airport to Peace River, Grande Prairie and Fort McMurray. Charter air services are also available.
