If you’re visiting Quesnel in Northern British Columbia, don’t forget to swing by the city’s famous Fraser River Footbridge.

This landmark is one of the longest pedestrian bridges in the world and offers visitors a chance to stroll back in time to Quensel’s past. Walking across the historical wooden bridge evokes thoughts of what it was like back when wagons and cattle used to cross this bridge. Bring an open mind and your imagination, and you can almost hear the sound of carts rattling along!

During daylight, simply take a stroll across the footbridge from West Quesnel to Downtown or vice versa and admire the views. Then, as the evening sets in, watch as the bridge is lit up by multicoloured lights and begins to sparkle against the Fraser River below.
