A journey into our shared prairie past.

This signature tour combines our popular Bison Safari experience with the sights, souths, smells and tastes of our shared prairie history, leaving you with a one-of-a-kind experience you won’t soon forget.

In this experience, you will:
Get up close and personal with Canada’s only urban bison herd on a Bison Safari to learn about the Plains bison and their importance to life on the prairie;
Transport yourself to voyageur times as you paddle across the lake in a historic-style voyageur canoe;
Immerse yourself in Manitoba’s cultural history by stepping into a Dakota Plains-style tipi and a one-room pioneer sod house, and
Cap off the day by savouring wild-harvested tea and roasting bannock over a campfire.
A Prairie Legacy: The Bison and Its People has been designated as a Canadian Signature Experience.
Experience the fall migration at FortWhyte Alive.

Join our experienced birding guides for a sunrise hike for beginners and experts alike. Afterwards, compare checklists over a light continental breakfast* in the Buffalo Stone Café.
Venture inside FortWhyte Alive’s bison prairie for an up-close encounter you’ve got to see to believe. See North America’s largest land mammal from just meters away, interacting in their natural habitat. Go on an adventure into our prairie past, and leave knowing more about how bison have shaped Canada’s history.
