Stewart and the surrounding Northern British Columbia region offer a vastly diverse landscape filled with outdoor recreation possibilities, not to mention easy access to Alaska.

The town's relative isolation adds to its charm as a very special place of untouched wilderness and exception wildlife.

View Alaskan brown grizzlies and black bears at Fish Creek, saltwater fish for all five species of Pacific salmon, snowmobile deep-powder alpine bowls, or learn some local history at Stewart's Historical Museum or on a walking tour of local historic buildings.

Summer is a popular time to visit Stewart, as bear watching is best during the July-August salmon run and glaciers are easily accessed on scenic drives. Fish Creek, just a few minutes drive across the American border, offers incredibly close viewings of Alaskan brown grizzlies and black bears in their natural environment eating spawning salmon. Bears are also a common sight on many of the area's hiking trails, but remember to always keep a safe distance.
