Activities and experiences
Re-live the last battle of the Métis resistance in 1885, where Louis Riel and Gabriel Dumont led Métis forces against the government troops of General Middleton’s men at Batoche. The bullet holes in the rectory wall and gravestones in the cemetery tell an eloquent tale. Join staff in authentic costume telling further stories of Métis life beside the banks of the South Saskatchewan River. Uncover history’s secrets with modern-day GPS.
Step on board the Batoche Shuttle, which will take you on a trip of discovery around Batoche National Historic Site.
Giddy up! Mount your wooden steed and gallop on a journey through time to meet the townsfolk of Batoche to learn about life on the prairies in the 1800s.
Take a hike along Li pchi shmayn trail and view the incredible various landscape views from many spots along the way. Métis people would not only travel these trails to get from one place to another but would gather as a family to pick berries, trap, hunt and share stories.
