The Alaska Highway through British Columbia offers visitors a stretch of road that travels through some of the world’s most wildly beautiful areas, filled with jaw-dropping scenery, wildlife sightings, and communities with a frontier past.
Beginning at “Mile 0” in Dawson Creek, this route winds through vast expanses of rolling prairie and boreal forest, past the upper reaches of the northern Rocky Mountains. Nearby is the Tumbler Ridge Global Geopark, home to unique geology and palaeontology, including dinosaur tracks and fossils. Muncho Lake Provincial Park offers excellent fishing and camping spots along the long, jade-green lake, while the hot springs at Liard River is one of the most popular stops on this storied trip.
One of the world’s legendary drives, the Alaska Highway is all about history and untamed wilderness: Here, 2,237 km (1,387 mi) of mountains, muskeg, Indigenous culture, and creatures such as caribou, Stone’s sheep, elk, and moose define this journey.
