Prince George Travel Guide

Prince George, North B.C.'s largest city, sits at the confluence of the Nechako and Fraser Rivers, and serves as the hub for recreationists for all over the world. North B.C. is known for its exceptional river rafting, skiing, wildlife viewing and hiking opportunities. It is also within driving distance of some of western Canada's most famous parks, such as Mount Robson Provincial Park and Jasper National Park (Alberta), both of which are known for their backcountry recreation.

Prince George also sits at the crossroads of Highways 16 and 97, two of northern B.C.'s most travelled highways.  North B.C.'s history and culture are reflected in the many museums, art galleries and historical landmarks that dot the landscape in and around Prince George and along these two highways.

To northerners, the culture is also displayed in their passion for sports. Visitors come from all over North B.C. to watch or participate in sporting events and tournaments, which can range from ice hockey to basketball. Prince George has 120 parks, six indoor and eight outdoor soccer fields, two aquatic centres, seven ice rinks and more than a thousand lakes and streams in the surrounding vicinity to swim, river raft, boat, and simply enjoy.
