North to Alaska (Hwy 37)

Mountains & Mist

Just off of Highway 37 is the Boya Lake Provincial Park offering visitors good angling, hiking, canoeing and camping opportunities. Some 100 km (62 miles) from Cassiar is the 60th parallel which is the boundary between BC and the Yukon. 33 km (20 miles) further is the Alaska Highway.

Alaska Hwy:
Journeys to Watson Lake(Peace River/Alaska Highway), Atlin and Atlin Lake and Whitehorse in the Yukon are possible from the Alaska Highway.

Once a gold rush town, this small community is situated on the eastern shores of Atlin Lake. With its numerous bays it provides excellent fishing for lake trout and grayling. The province's largest natural lake is glacier fed by the Coast Mountains that tower in the background. Atlin is northwest from Jake's Corner on the Alaska Highway. Visit the Atlin Museum in a 1902 school house displaying gold rush artifacts and providing a walking tour. The restored Atlin Pioneer Cemetery (1898) is also worth a visit.

Tatshenshini River Atlin Centre for the Arts:
Three to four week programs for artists, students and teachers.

Atlin Provincial Park: One-third of this wilderness park is glacier covered. Guides and outfitters are available as there is no road access.

The Chilkoot Trail:
Stretching from Dyea, Alaska to Bennett, BC, this 53 km (33 miles) trail was once used by miners making their way to the Yukon. Today hikers from around the globe come to experience this wilderness preserve. The trail head begins in Skagway, Alaska.

Tatshenshini-Alsek Wilderness Provincial Park:
Separating Alaska from the Yukon, this new northwestern wilderness park may be enjoyed by experienced rafters and mountaineers. It is one of the largest internationally protected areas in the world.
