If you’re flying into Fort McMurray or the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo, odds are you’re arriving at Fort McMurray International Airport (YMM).
Fort McMurray Airport has a number of attractions for you to see before and after your flights in or out of the facility.
The airport itself offers 16 food and shopping options, as well as professional art installations by leading Canadian artists. It’s also an environmentally sustainable complex, designed to conserve energy and reduce the overall footprint left behind by the airport and the passengers it serves. You won’t be spending all your time at the airport, though; just 12.2 km east is Vista Ridge All Seasons Park. During the summer, this is one of the local hot spots for forested adventure, where you can zip line, climb, and jump from tree to tree (while wearing safety harnesses, of course). In the winter, Vista Ridge becomes a snow-lover’s playground, with eight trails and a five-lane tube park. You can even go snowshoeing!
Some 8 km to the west of the airport is the Oil Sands Discovery Centre. Fort McMurray and its surrounding areas are located atop the Athabasca oil sands, and at the Discovery Centre you can wander through the exhibit hall, or watch an oil sands extraction demonstration. You’ll also get an up-close look at some of the gigantic machines that do much of the work.
