Bison on the side of a mountain in BC, Canada

Vast, remote, and enchanting, the northernmost lands of BC hold one of the world’s last true wilderness areas.

Roam through otherworldly landscapes, where nature reigns and animals outnumber humans.

Immerse yourself in a place with endless paths and skies that stretch beyond the imagination. The Great Wilderness sprawls across northern British Columbia, from the coast mountain range in the west to the Alberta border in the east, and from Highway 16 in the south to the Yukon border in the north. It is a land of incredible scale, where magnificent natural wonders and diverse wildlife share space with the original and ongoing stewards, the Indigenous Peoples.

Leave the day-to-day behind and journey into the extraordinary, where mountains, glaciers, and booming waterways shift perspectives and remind us of something greater than ourselves.
Here, you can connect with fascinating characters, natural wonders, rich culture, ancient geology, and enriching experiences that awe and inspire. Feel the heartbeat of northern BC and learn from those who have shaped this diverse and magnetic area.

The fall scenery was stunning. 🍁🍂 I love this picture because it captures the highway's ups and downs, the vibrant fall colors, and the distant truck adding perspective. 📸 #FallRoadTrip #YellowheadHighway #AutumnJourney #ScenicDrive #princegeorgebc #canadahighway

One of the highlights of Canada’s highways is driving through the Rockies. The mountain featured in this photo is Mount Robson and being one of the most prominent mountains in the range, it is jaw dropping.
