Atlin offers incredible lakeside mountain views and easy access to remote nature. The town's isolated location, especially from the rest of BC, makes visiting here that much more special.

Popular activities include lake fishing, hiking, and boating on the gorgeous aqua-coloured Atlin Lake, BC's largest natural lake. Other attractions include discovering the town's fascinating gold rush history or local art scene.

Summer Activities

Spend a day hiking Monarch Mountain, or boat across Atlin Lake to access the Llewellyn Glacier. Walk into and onto ice field, and actually listen to it melt. On cooler days, drive a few minutes out of town and warm up at the knee-deep warm springs. On warm days, have a picnic at Pine Creek Falls, just a few minutes drive from town. The lake's are glacier-fed so are quite cold, making swimming a courageous feat.
