Activities and Gear

There is a lot to do in Fort Chipewyan if you love the outdoors! In the summer, you can see boats going up and down the river.  You will always see a lot of quads and bikes. In the winter, you will see a lot of skidoos. If you are thinking about winter activities there is snow for many months of the year!
