EXPLORE THE REMARKABLE
The trail through time seldom leaves the footprints so visible as those you will find in Northeastern British Columbia. Follow the footprints that shaped the present and formed the future.
Stand where dinosaurs danced in Tumbler Ridge while exploring the Tumbler Ridge Global Geo Park. Marvel at the wooden rail trestle at Pouce Coupe reminding us of the trail of the iron rails that forged new frontiers in the North. Walk in the paths of thousands of soldiers who first set foot in Dawson Creek at the NAR Train Station in the quest to build the Alaska Highway. Experience the joy and hardships of the early settlers in Chetwynd where harvesting the forest became the trail to prosperity. Travel the road “Never to be Traveled Again” when the new Site C hydroelectric dam near Fort St John floods the mighty Peace River beyond Hudson’s Hope. Feel the pelts of native animals in Fort St. John while learning about the flow of furs from trap-line to market. In Fort Nelson, pick your own trail through the amazing collection of antique cars and trucks that have worked the Alaska Highway from the beginning in 1942.
Drive the ribbon of highway we all call “Home”. We invite you to leave your footprints and take with you an experience of a lifetime.
