Attractions in Northern BC reflect the area's natural beauty and profound history.

Discover ancient old growth forests and rugged coastlines on a sightseeing tour or photo safari. With a little luck, the legendary Kermode (Spirit) bear may make an appearance. Of course, the wild scenery looks even more impressive from above – drive to spectacular view points or hop aboard a flightseeing tour.

Visit Northern BC’s museums and heritage sites to discover Aboriginal culture, towering totem poles, what it was like to be a settler in the north, and the importance of the railway and forestry to this part of BC.
