Peace River is a small town in northwestern Alberta, sitting on the banks of a river of the same name. The entire region is known as Mighty Peace Country, and Peace River is one of the main hubs for business and trade in the middle of it. In winter, snow sports are popular thanks to the Misery Mountain Ski Centre just across the river from the township, and in summer, it’s all about outdoor recreation with golfing, hiking, and water-based activities on the river. You’ll have the opportunity to zip around town and explore the surrounding area when you pick up a Peace River Airport car rental upon arrival.
With a rental car in Peace River, you can also take road trips all over Alberta, or even into British Columbia.

If you’ve never seen the Northern Lights, they’re common this far north in the fall, spring and winter, and you can drive three hours up to High Level for an even better chance at this cosmic experience.
