Located at the fork of the Fraser and Nechako rivers, and surrounded by hundreds of lakes, Prince George is a city on the edge of wilderness. Book a canoe or kayak tour of the historic Fraser Canyon with Backwater Paddling, or a guided fishing trip with Reel North Adventures. Hike Teapot or Fang mountains for stunning views of the area, or head east to walk among the giants in the Ancient Forest/Chun T’oh Whudujut Park and Protected Area, the only inland temperate rainforest in the world. Mountain bike the trails at Pidherny Recreation Site or enjoy nature on horseback with El Shaddai Ranch. On the way west, be sure to stop in Vanderhoof and hike to Greer Creek Falls.
Before heading west to the Lakes District, take a side trip east to see Mount Robson, the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies.
