Home of the Iconic Northern Lights

Northern British Columbia is Canada’s most westerly province and certainly one of the most beautiful destinations in the world.

With vast national parks and a breathtaking landscape whatever the season, Northern BC is the place for anyone wanting to experience the great outdoors. Cottonwood Island Nature Park in particular has been attracting visitors from around the world for decades, but don’t stop there. This prime location is also one of the best places in Canada to witness the iconic northern lights, so head north and enjoy the view. 

But it’s not just the views that will keep you entertained. Northern British Columbia has a lot to offer when it comes to culture. Prince George and Fort St. John are home to a wide range of fine-dining restaurants, award-winning history museums and high-end boutiques.

Or if you prefer to keep it simple, then head to one of the many homely cafés, local breweries and farmer’s markets dotted throughout the region.

One thing we know for sure: if you’re considering a trip to Western Canada, you won’t regret including Northern BC in your schedule.
