The northwest of British Columbia is vast, stretching up to the Yukon/Alaska border, with a bit of everything—dramatic glaciated valleys, volcanic rock formations, mountain ranges, and mist-shrouded rainforest, anchored by the outdoor community of Smithers and port city of Prince Rupert.

While BC has lots of remote and wild, Tatshenshini-Alsek Provincial Park stirs the spirit, elevating that to a whole other level. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its immense river network and diversity of animal life, including the blue-ish glacier bear. North Tweedsmuir Provincial Park is also a remote wonderland, with only two ways in, by boat, or by float plane. This area’s wild forest, mountain, and coastal landscape make it an ideal destination for a road trip.

Highway 16

Highway 16, also known as the Yellowhead Highway, stretches from the Rocky Mountains to the rugged Pacific coastline, and the Stewart-Cassiar Highway stretches up to the Yukon and Alaska borders.
