Majestic mountains, jade-coloured lakes, and amazing wildlife — Northern Rockies is a travel experience like none other. 

Canadians are itching to experience new travel destinations without the crowds. The Northern Rockies offers the kind of jaw-dropping scenery and storied history that will have you asking why you haven’t visited before. 

Tucked up in the northeastern corner of British Columbia, the Northern Rockies is waiting to be explored. Majestic mountains, jade-coloured lakes, amazing wildlife, and welcoming towns — it’s a travel experience guaranteed to be like none other.

Stock up in Fort Nelson, the hub of the region, and hit the Alaska Highway to Muncho Lake, but leave lots of time, because waterfalls, hiking trails, and coursing rivers will tempt you to stop and explore along the way. Further on, you can relax in the Liard River Hot Springs, the second-largest hot springs in Canada.

 The Northern Rockies is nature’s playground for all seasons. The days linger during the summer, allowing lots of time to explore. Come winter, the landscape turns into a winter wonderland perfect for many more outdoor activities and warming by the fire.  

 The region is home to several Indigenous communities whose people have been guardians of this spectacular landscape since time immemorial. Plan your visit around events throughout the year that showcase the traditional activities and cultures of these communities. 

Are you ready for amazing nature and wildlife experiences with a small-town feel? The Northern Rockies is waiting for you.
