Looking for things to do in Smithers? The town is an oasis for everything outdoors.
An abundance of mountains, rivers and lakes – not to mention fossil beds and cultural sights – are all within a few minutes from downtown and easily accessible for self-guided visitors or those on tours.
The Smithers Visitor Centre, at the corner of Main Street and Highway 16, is a great source of information for things to do in town. The centre has comprehensive guides and brochures on specific activities such as hiking, biking, fishing and more.
During the winter, adventurers can choose from cross-country skiing, downhill skiing or snowboarding at Hudson Bay Mountain, backcountry skiing or heli-skiing.
