Northern British Columbia
Top 10 Activities

Drive the Alaska Highway.
Even though road construction started in 1942, it's still the road to adventure. This black ribbon of pavement slices through rolling farmland and wild, rugged terrain between Dawson Creek and Fort Nelson.

Hike along a lava 'moonscape'.
The Nisga'a Memorial Lava Bed Provincial Park, north of Terrace on Kalum Lake Road, is literally a 'moonscape' created as a result of volcanic activity in the 1700s. The 100 meter (328 ft) cinder cone that erupted - sadly, causing so much death and destruction - is a fascinating feature of the park.

Visit the W.A.C. Bennett Dam.
It is one of the largest earth-filled structures in the world. Visit the W.A.C. Bennett Dam at Hudson's Hope and learn about the production of hydroelectricity, as you tour the visitor centre's numerous exhibits and audio-visual theatre.

See the Lower Grand Canyon.
Enjoy a jet boat tour or guided raft or kayak trip along the Stikine River near Telegraph Creek. Witness the awesome sight of the river's water rushing through the sheer-walled gorge of the Lower Grand Canyon, Canada's largest canyon.

Visit the Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve in the Queen Charlotte Islands.
Discover the rich and dynamic culture of the Haida nation who live in the Queen Charlotte Islands, known as Haida Gwaii. Explore these misty, moody, hauntingly beautiful "islands of the people."

See the 'Ksan historical village.
Watch carvers and aboriginal entertainers. And learn the legends behind totems. See traditional longhouses, and enjoy salmon smoked the old way at this world-renowned replica of a model Gitksan village, located near the Hazeltons.

Cruise the famed Inside Passage.
Cruise the world-famous Inside Passage with BC Ferries, a 15-hour voyage from Prince Rupert to Port Hardy, through deep fjords and past temperate rain forests. See whales, porpoises, seals and black and brown bears.

Catch a trophy-sized salmon.
Stay at a luxurious fishing lodge in the Queen Charlotte Islands or on the north coast. Enjoy searching out halibut and salmon in the saltwaters around Kitimat, Stewart and Prince Rupert.

Go river rafting, day or night.
The Stikine River, which starts at an ice cave in the Cassiar Mountains to the north and flows through nearby Mount Edziza Provincial Park, offers great adventures for outdoor enthusiasts. Experienced canoeists, kayakyers, and rafters can run sections of the Stikine River as far as Alaska.

Hike through numerous wilderness parks and wildlife preserves.
This is a wildlife wonderland. In the Northern Rockies, the Muskwa-Kechika Special Management Area is called the "Serengeti of the North". Nowhere outside of Africa is there such unparalleled wildlife diversity and intact ecosystems.
