Transportation & Maps
Travel distances in between communities in Northern British Columbia can be quite long, so car travel is usually the best option.
However, long distances go unnoticed along beautiful scenic driving routes through the region.
Fort St. John is the second largest city along the Alaska Highway (the largest is Whitehorse, Yukon), and is therefore a hub of travel services and rentals. Fort St. John Airport offers daily flights to and from various locations in British Columbia and Alberta. Car rentals are available at the airport and in town. Greyhound buses also service Fort St. John. For visitors staying in and around downtown Fort St. John, restaurants, shops, and other amenities are within walking distance.
The world famous Alaska Highway is the main route to Fort St. John for visitors travelling north from British Columbia, south from the Yukon, and west from Alberta. Travelers from Prince George can drive along the Hart Highway 97, connecting through Hudson's Hope on Highway 29 to the Alaska Highway. Of course, car travel is the best way to enjoy any of the many scenic drives in Fort St. John. Car rentals are available at several locations throughout town.
