In Northern BC there is plenty of water and lots of ways to enjoy it.

Relax in therapeutic hot springs at Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park or stroll along long, remote beaches at Naikoon Provincial Park. Try whitewater rafting on untamed rivers, such as the Tatshenshini-Alsek River, or try surfing near Masset on Haida Gwaii. Enjoy kayaking, canoeing or boating around calming lakes. Go fishing and land the big one in either lakes, rivers or the Pacific Ocean. 

For longer getaways, cruise the Inside Passage, and spot whales, eagles and grizzlies on the way to Port Hardy. Or set sail for the Queen Charlotte Islands to explore totem poles and other artifacts of the Haida First Nations.
