Adventure at its Peak!
Fort Nelson serves as the Gateway to
the Northern Rockies and the vast
Muskwa-Kechika region, a wilderness
area touted as the `Serengeti of the
North', both for the grandeur of its wild
vistas and for the number of animals
and variety of species within it. With
Fort Nelson as a `home base', visitors
are free to explore all that BC's far
northeast has to offer.

Established as a fur trading post in 1805,
Fort Nelson really flourished as a result of the
construction of the Alaska Highway in the early
40's. Today, it's a thriving community with an
economy based on forestry, oil and gas, as well
as on area services and tourism.
As a launch point for enjoying the outdoors, Fort
Nelson is surrounded by a back country bursting
with opportunity for everyone! Head "up
highway", west and north into the Northern Rocky
Mountains, and into our back yard. Whether you
prefer relaxing with a good book at a secluded bed
& breakfast or gearing up for a week-long trek
through the awesome natural erosion sculptures
of the Wokkpash Valley, the choice is yours. Shoot
some white water or do an easy float trip, camp
in alpine forests by a glacier-green mountain lake,
explore the wilderness by riverboat, escape for
a remote weekend in a rustic cabin, relax and
refresh in the lush Liard River Hot Springs,
pamper yourself at a luxurious mountain retreat,
experience some of BC's finest freshwater fishing,
launch your canoe or kayak for an afternoon
outing or a week-long wilderness trip, hitch up with
a trail ride, or take your camera flightseeing
... or wildlife spotting or birding. Fort Nelson and
the Northern Rockies truly offer "your great
escape", whatever that might be.
This program is unique to Fort Nelson, and is
appreciated by travellers from all over the world.
Join us for a presentation about our community
and learn about Fort Nelson and the region. An
excellent way to start your Fort Nelson and
Northern Rockies adventure.
