From Terrace, travel west along Highway 16 to reach Prince Rupert, or east to reach Smithers. The highway follows the Skeena River and offers glorious views of local peaks and mountain ranges. On a sunny day, the trips are absolutely stunning. The ride to Prince Rupert is gorgeous in the early spring, when the snow melts off the mountains and spills from the rocky cliffs that line the highway in the form hundreds of waterfalls.

It takes about one and a half hours to drive to Prince Rupert and two hours to drive to Smithers.
