Chetwynd offers a variety of adventure experiences
that are sure to thrill your senses and leave you
wanting more! Explore our great outdoors on
land or on the water. Chetwynd has a great hiking
and biking trail system as well as several lakes
and rivers.
Chetwynd was recently rated the most livable
small community in BC. Spend some time in the
community - you will soon see why!
Known worldwide for a fantastic collection of
chainsaw carvings, Chetwynd's collection includes
more than 60 beautiful pieces, with new
sculptures being added all the time. Stop by the
Visitor Centre for a map of the carvings and to
sign up for a guided walking tour.
Outdoor enthusiasts will find themselves with
more than enough to do. Choose from a great
selection of hiking and biking trails, or explore a
local lake or river. Riverboat tours and boat rentals
are available on Moberly Lake. The fishing is
great in our waters - try Moberly Lake, Gwillim
Lake, Sundance Lake, and the Pine, Murray and
Sukunka rivers to get you started.
Murals
If taking your own walk about town, be
sure to enjoy the murals on the local
buildings. A mixture of tile mosaics and
painted murals liven up the buildings as
you turn every corner. The murals have
been an ongoing project involving adult
artists and student groups.
