Stewart, Sightseeing Tours

Highway 37A has to arguably be one of the most beautiful highways in British Columbia. That stretch of road alone holds beautiful cascading waterfalls, snow cap mountains you have to strain to see the top of and all kinds of wildlife grazing along side. The road itself is very windy and with a mountain on one side and the river on the other, it's definitely one to take slow, allowing more time to take in the surroundings.
Be sure to pull over along your way at Bear Glacier, a beautiful blue glacier found 20 minutes from Meziadin Junction. Once you reach Stewart, take a drive down main street and check out the local shops, or go for a walk along the beautiful boardwalk that takes you out towards the ocean.
Highway 37A is a breathtakingly gorgeous drive and I promise you won't regret the trip up north to take in the vast beauty.
