Northern British Columbia
Welcome to Northern British Columbia. Two major transportation corridors access the northern half of BC, Highway #97 (North to the Peace/Alaska region) and Highway #16 (The Yellowhead Highway west to Prince Rupert)
Northwest & Yellowhead #16 follows the Yellowhead Highway 16 from the Alberta border in the east to Prince Rupert on the Pacific coast. At Kitwanga you can head north on Hwy 37 to Stewart, the Yukon & Alaska.
The Northwest and Yellowhead Highway #16 area of Northern British Columbia is a land of unlimited adventure that extends 1,000 kilometres from east to west following the Yellowhead Highway 16. From the towering Rocky Mountains to the rugged Coast Range and then on to the Pacific Ocean and the mist shrouded Queen Charlotte Islands, this part of Northern BC promises the visitor some of British Columbia's most breathtaking scenery. Steeped in history, the rivers, valleys and lakes of Northern BC hold much to be discovered.
Peace River / Alaska Highway follows the Highway 97 north from Prince George to Dawson Creek and the heart of the Peace River Country. From there Hwy 97 continues north to the Yukon and Alaska. Located in the Northeast of the province, between the Rocky Mountain Foothills on the west and the Alberta Plains on the east, this is a land of diverse and fantastic beauty.
Wildlife is abundant and visitors are often treated to views of Grizzly and Black bears, deer, moose, caribou, and bald eagles. The rivers and lakes offer anglers world class fishing for Lake Char, Northern Pike, Walleye, Arctic Grayling, Dolly Varden, Rainbow Trout and Mountain Whitefish.
The Peace River Alaska Highway is truly a four-season paradise. Spring, summer and fall provide vacationers great camping, hiking, canoeing, fishing and hunting opportunities, while skiers, snowmobilers and ice-fishermen enjoy the winter.
From endless hours of summer daylight to the incredible winter displays of the Northern Lights, the friendly people of the Peace River Alaska Highway region welcome you to visit this spectacular country.
