Other destinations[edit]


Northern British Columbia is a vast area, most of it undeveloped. Most settlements are along the Yellowhead Highway (Hwy 16) or the Peace River area. Much of the land is forested and mountainous, although the Peace River Country is flatter and an the upstream extension of the Peace River in neighbouring Alberta.

Get in[edit]

Driving will demand many hours at the wheel. In the summer months, expect at least 14 hours of driving from the border. In the winter months, you will need to bring a chain for the drive on the Alaska Highway and at least 16 hours of driving.

Flights from the Vancouver International Airport can be as low as $170. Be sure to check Air Canada's, Westjet's or Central Mountain Air's websites often and book well in advance.





Stay safe[edit]

As of late July, 2019, travel on the Alaska and Cassiar Highways is not recommended.
