Hotels in Fort McMurray

Introduction to Fort McMurray

Fort McMurray began as a Hudson Bay Company trading post back in 1870. For years it was a simple railway stop for the Alberta and Great Waterways Railway. That all changed with the discovery of oil. The population bloomed, becoming the modern yet low-keyed prairie city of today. Book your trip to this northern metropolis using the Skyscanner online booking engine. Find the cheapest hotel and airfare rates and take care of that car rental. It's a destination for the truly adventurous.

Things to Do in Fort McMurray

Fort McMurray shares its oil history at the Oil Sands Discovery Centre, located near the city centre. Your admission fee includes several documentary films, oil extraction demonstrations and entrance to the Dr. Karl A. Clark Exhibit Hall. If you really want to feel small, stand next to the 150 tonne hauling truck on display. Even more giant machines are on display at the Syncrude Giants of Mining Museum.

Mr. E's Solve-It-Torium lets you put your puzzle solving skills to work. Book a room and a theme and soon you're on your way to finding clues and getting to the bottom of a specially designed mystery. Located right in town, this is fun for kids of all ages.

Fort McMurray is not without its nightlife. The Boomtown Casino offers gaming, live entertainment and meals at the Clearwater Café. Pubs, such as the Live Bar and Grill and the Tavern on Main are also available.

Shoppers, spend some time at the Peter Pond Mall or the Points North Gallery, which has local artworks on offer. Find books, jewellery, health foods and supplements at the Lifeforce Herbal Healing Centre.

Getting To and Around Fort McMurray

Located roughly 14 kilometres from downtown, the Fort McMurray International Airport (YMM) is the most convenient gateway. Since this is a largely rural area, you may want to rent a car, van or suv. Find the rental desks on Level 1, in the Arrivals Hall. Taxis are available, with fares based on distance and time. Shuttles are usually pre-booked with participating hotels and company work-sites. Route 11 on the Wood Buffalo Transit offers service from outside the arrivals area to downtown. Fare is roughly $2.00 CAD and it's a good option if you travel light.

Special Considerations

In May of 2016, Fort McMurray was caught in the middle of a raging wildfire that burned more than a million acres of forestland surrounding the city. Parts of the forest still show the burn scars. Several homes were lost, but the people are resilient and the rebuilding continues to this day. Visitors are most welcome. It is one place to see the Canadian "can do" attitude on full display.
