Working in Coincide with a museum, I have learned about the beautiful and unique culture of the Metis and the even greater history this people boasts. I was so excited to see Metis Crossing but was so disappointed The museum only showcased 10 paragraphs of information which doesn't give their history justice.

We took our two kids (ages 10 and 13) on the zipline tour and we all loved it! It was a fantastic experience with beautiful views to enjoy. The staff was incredible, friendly, and made the experience very enjoyable. Excellent price for a fun family adventure. I recommend it to all my friends with kids--young or old!

We went on the zipline with a goup of 6 that included 2 kids. All loved it. It was a great zipline for those that aren't sure whether you will enjoy it. Not too steep, not too high and not too long. Also a great price. The course took the six of us and 3 guides about 1 hour. You... More
