Having trouble spotting Northern BC's elusive wildlife? A trip to Adam's Igloo 8km west of Smithers on Hwy 16 will give you ample viewing opportunities of all the region's animals! Just look for the big white igloo alongside the highway!
I recently visited Adam's Igloo and was surprised at the huge variety of wildlife that is there! He has specimens of every animal from a bumblebee to the biggest moose I've ever seen! The animals are all displayed in a very natural looking setting, often interacting with each other against the beautifully painted mural backdrop. Be sure to look in every nook and cranny of the scenes, because there's sure to be some little animal poking out to say hello! I especially enjoyed the lynx that's trying to swat a bird out of the sky!
The museum is open 9am-7pm daily, but even if the open sign isn't on and the silver truck is in the driveway, feel free to ring the doorbell. If the owner's around, he'll happily let you in and tell you all about his collection!
