Take Highway 35 to the intersection of Highway 697; the La Crete Ferry turnoff. Follow it until you reach the mighty Peace River and an experience few land-locked Albertans would want to miss.

The ferry is one of only two in Alberta. It crosses the Peace at Tompkins Landing in all its roaring splendor and peaceful serenity. The town of La Crete, at the north base of the beautiful Buffalo Head Hills, is surrounded by forests, lakes and lush farmland. The area boasts unlimited opportunities for adventure such as water sports, hunting, camping, fishing, snowmobiling. The La Crete Mennonite Heritage Village features many historical buildings from the original townsite.
