Relax and watch the sun rise over the plains in Wood Buffalo National Park. Look for a wood bison or a whooping crane as you glimpse the contrast of the colour of the red samphire against the whiteness of the salt in the Salt Plains. Feel the sensation of powdery crystals under bare feet and sample the brine from an underground river.
