Northern British Columbia
There is a rugged strength in Northern BC. From Dawson Creek to Queen Charlotte City, Northern BC offers some of the most diverse landscape -- and seascape -- in the province, offering exceptional outdoor pursuits of every kind. Anglers delight in the intricate system of roaring rivers that fill the Pacific Ocean with record-setting Sockeye, Chinook, and Coho salmon during yearly spawning migrations, while nature photographers love the bears and eagles the fish attract. Steelhead, yellow perch, whitefish, and a variety of other fish are also found in abundance here.
Access Northern BC easily by train, car, plane, or ferry. Commercial flights arrive daily into Dawson Creek, Fort Nelson, Fort St. John, Kitimat, Prince George, Prince Rupert, Sandspit, and Smithers, while BC Rail journeys three times per week from North Vancouver to Prince George. BC Ferries also sails to Prince Rupert from Port Hardy on Vancouver Island, from Southeast Alaska, and from the Queen Charlotte Islands. Drivers can reach Northern BC from Southern BC via Highway 97, from Northern Alberta via the Yellowhead Highway (Hwy 16), and from the Yukon and Alaska via the Alaska Highway (Hwy 97).
