Here you can see a video of Anhluut’ukwsim Laxmihl Angwinga’asanskwhl Nisga’a (Nisga’a Memorial Lava Bed Park). I've travelled here many times before and I thought I'd share my experience with you all!
It was named the first provincial park within British Columbia. There was a lava spill estimated 250 years ago, rough and jagged lava remain at the site. Not only does it have a magnificant volcanic landscape but in addition rich native culture. With that being said the lava beds make it an incredible experience not to be forgotten.

A photo of my brother and I (also works for Tourism Kitimat) located at the giant spruce. The giant spruce is one of Kitimat’s main attractions. It is BC's largest registered Sitka Spruce tree, and although it is weathered it is still a living tree. The tree is protected by environmental law, but if it was cut down it could provide enough lumber to frame 9 average houses.
The tree itself is situated in a lush forest environment with thick greenery covering the area. Paths are setup to view the giant spruce, and other large Sitka spruces in the area which are just as awe inspiring as the Giant Spruce itself. Looking up at the trees, reaching high up into the sky, is a magnificent experience not to be missed while you are in Kitimat.
