Fort Nelson offers easy access to in-town and backcountry adventures, including hiking, camping, fishing, wildlife viewing, boating, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing.
Explore Fort Nelson's integral connection to the Alaska Highway at the Fort Nelson Museum, or along the highway itself.
Substitute driving along the Alaska Highway for cycling, and stop at interpretive signs and Historical Mile markers along the route. Ride into the Muskwa-Kechika Management Area on ATVs (sticking to designated access routes), or ride by horseback along the multiple trails leading into the backcountry around Fort Nelson and the Rocky Mountains.
The backcountry is also good for hiking, camping, and of course, wildlife viewing. Visitors must supply their own ATVs, horses, and equipment. Guide outfitting tours are also available in Fort Nelson.
