The District of Kitimat (population: 9,332) is a family-oriented community based in the heart of the Northern British Columbia wilderness.
The Kitimat River and nearby ocean channels are ideal for a variety of water sports and exciting adventures, including freshwater and saltwater fishing, kayaking, canoeing, boating and visiting hot springs. Similarly, the area's untouched lands, forests and peaks entice and fully accommodate people hiking, rock climbing, ATVing, snowmobiling, guide outfitting, cross-country skiing, and many more.
Things to Do in Kitimat
In one day, hike Mount Elizabeth and watch an ocean sunset from the top of a mountain or Hospital Beach in town. Spend a few hours cross-country skiing at the Onion Lake Ski Trails then warm up by the woodstove in the chalet. Fish in the ocean during the day; catch some crab and cook it over the fire while fishing the Kitimat River in the evening.
