Since the first Chentsit'hala Carrier First Nation's summer camp at the confluence of the Fraser and Quesnel rivers, Quesnel's close proximity to this waterway system has attracted explorers, prospectors, farmers and adventurers.
Today, visitors are attracted to Quesnel's agricultural bounty – celebrated through the North Cariboo Farm Tour and the Quesnel Old Time Farmers' Market. Its striking natural setting is enjoyed on hiking trails and while camping in provincial parks.
Explore the city's rich cultural heritage at the Quesnel & District Museum and in more than 30 heritage sites around town. Quesnel's convenient location in Highway 97, the main corridor through interior British Columbia, also makes it a great destination for dining and accommodation options.
