If you’re looking for perspective, connection with nature, and space to roam, look to BC’s northern reaches. From glacial valleys and soaring mountain peaks, to dense forests and sweeping wildlife parks, the wilderness here is of a different scale.

Feel the pulse of ancient lands as you travel along historic, scenic routes, whether from Prince George and up the Alaska Highway, or down Highway 16 towards the Stewart-Cassiar. Take time to enjoy the serenity, big nature, and small-town culture along the way, in BC’s northern wild.
