Group Tours

Our tour programs offer an unbeatable way for you to get to understand the rich history of the park and the Plains Indigenous First Nations people who have lived here for thousands of years.

We offer guided tour programs year-round for school groups, non-for-profit organizations, individuals, tour groups, and businesses. We recommend booking your guided tour ahead of time to save a tour spot since advance notice is required for a guided tour. On weekends we offer public programming for general admissions visitors. Check out our Event Calendar to see what is happening at Wanuskewin.
