BC’s northwest stretches up to the Yukon/Alaska border, showcasing dramatic glaciated valleys, volcanic rock formations, mountain ranges, and mist-shrouded rainforest, anchored by the port city of Prince Rupert.
While BC has lots of remote and wild, Tatshenshini-Alsek Provincial Park stirs the spirit. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site, thanks to its immense river network and diversity of animal life, including the blue-ish glacier bear. Mount Edziza Provincial Park and the Spatzizi Wilderness Plateau are both remote wonderlands. Along Route 16, which stretches from Prince Rupert to Prince George, North Tweedsmuir Provincial Park is equally remote with only two ways in: By boat or floatplane.
This area’s wild forest, mountain, and coastal landscape make it an ideal destination for a road trip.
