Visiting Northern British Columbia & the Yukon

This is the time for outdoor activities in northern British Columbia. Valemount is surrounded by endless opportunities for adventures in the Rocky Mountains, Cariboo Mountains, and Monashee Mountains. The weather is right for hiking in places like the scenic Jackman Flats Provincial Park and fishing in spots like Kinbasket Lake.

It’s the best time of year for the popular activity known as geocaching. Register now and start charging your GPS for the 2016 Valemount Geocache Event, held the third weekend in June. The surrounding hiking trails hold the treasure, but the Valemount Museum serves as the before-and-after meeting place, providing live music, a taco stand, and a chance to test your GPS gear.

To the west, the community of Quesnel is gearing up for the 43rd Annual Billy Barker Days. Taking place July 14th through 17th, Billy Barker Days are a celebration of northern BC’s Gold Rush heritage and the whole town comes alive as it transforms itself into a 1890s mining town. There are period costume rentals, dances, parades, rodeos, and loads of special activities for the kids, all culminating in Billy’s Spectacular Fireworks Display on Sunday evening.

Terrace celebrates its own history with the 2016 Terrace Riverboat Days, July 29th through August 7th. Kicking off August Long Weekend, the Riverboat Days are an opportunity to appreciate Terrace’s unmatched natural surroundings, and festival staples like the Legion Parade, Concerts in the Park, and the fireworks over Ferry Island will help visitors get a sense of the personality of the people of Terrace.

Whitehorse, located to the far north in the Yukon, is also surrounded by an abundance of breathtaking scenery – and there’s no better time than the summer to get out and explore. Miles Canyon is a peaceful getaway less than half an hour north of town, Emerald Lake – with its brilliant emerald glow – lives up to its name less than hour to the south, and the Yukon Wildlife Preserve offers glimpses of 10 native species in their natural habitats, right on the north side of town.
