Full Features & Benefits

Northern BC is a vast area, covering more land than the entire country of Sweden. In the west, the port city of Prince Rupert sits nestled among the majestic coast mountains, acting as a gateway to the Pacific Ocean and the incredible islands of Haida Gwaii. To the east, the Rocky Mountains cast their imposing shadow over the land, attracting hikers, mountaineers and ski tourers from far and wide. As you move north towards the Yukon border, the human population becomes sparser and nature rules the land. In between, places like Spatsizi Wilderness Provincial Park contain some of the most breathtaking landscapes in the country. Whether you are looking to fish, camp, ATV, snowmobile, view wildlife or just take in the sights along the region’s many roads, Northern BC offers an abundance of adventure.

To help you navigate this sprawling area more easily, the latest edition of our Northern BC Backroad Mapbook contains numerous updates and expansions. In addition to expanded road coverage, we have updated our motorized and multi-use trails, added fish species to many lakes and rivers and included a ton of new Points of Interest. We have also included private land areas, new inset maps of the McBride area and expanded our Adventures listings with additions to each section, plus a brand new Backcountry Huts section and Fish Stocking and Trails Charts. Additionally, this book now contains detailed Community Profiles.

Backroad Adventures

Backroad Adventures
No other BC map gets you out into the backcountry with confidence like this one. Northern BC communities like Prince George, Atlin, Fort St. John, Haida Gwaii, Dawson Creek, Terrace and Smithers offer many heritage sights and attractions, but it’s the endless backcountry that really makes this a special place to visit. With enough virgin wilderness to spend a lifetime exploring, our maps keep you on track with the best backcountry adventures, from the Grand Canyon of the Stikine to the Tumbler Ridge dinosaur footprints. Our Backroad Adventure section has been refined and expanded for this edition, and includes over 100 incredible backroad attractions.

Fishing Adventures
From BC’s largest lake, Williston Lake, to the literally hundreds of other untouched lakes teeming with fish such as the Cameron Lakes and Muncho Lake, the water bodies surrounding Prince George, Fort St. John, Dawson Creek, Prince Rupert and the neighbouring backcountry offer some of Canada’s best fishing. Your Northern BC Mapbook contains close to 500 descriptions of the best fishing lakes, rivers and ocean hotspots, plus tips on the best BC fish species and how to catch them. New to this edition, we now include fish stocking charts for brook trout, cutthroat trout, kokanee, lake trout, rainbow trout and salmon.

Hunting Adventures
From rain-soaked coastal forests to prairie grasslands, high alpine and sprawling stands of spruce and pine, Northern BC boasts a wide range of big and small game habitat that creates some of the country’s finest hunting opportunities. Our Hunting Adventures section has been updated and expanded, with detailed descriptions of the region’s big game species and breakdowns of each WMU (Wildlife Management Unit) in the Skeena, Omineca and Peace areas, plus information on BC hunting regulations. From the Skeena-Bulkley region to the Omineca Mountains, Fraser River Basin and the Peace Agricultural Zone, we’ve got you covered.

Paddling Adventures
The paddling section of our map book uses a modified version of the International River Classification System to mark the scenic waterways throughout Northern BC. From the paddling in Gwaii Haanas National Park in Haida Gwaii – some of the world’s most sacred and renowned ocean paddling – to the Nechako River and the dozens of small rivers that snake through northern BC, our Paddling Adventures section details close to 80 paddling routes. Whether whitewater paddling or gliding peacefully across a lake, we offer everything you need to know about canoeing and kayaking in Northern BC.

Park Adventures
One of the best ways to explore Northern BC is through the region’s many provincial parks. Your Northern BC Mapbook lists 150 parks throughout the region, including Gwaii Haanas National Park, replete with First Nations history, and Khutzeymateen Provincial Park, where you will find the province’s greatest number of grizzly bears – plus map coordinates and lists of amenities. Let us show you the beautiful backcountry around Prince George, Fort St. John and beyond, like you’ve never seen it before!

Rec Site Adventures
Those looking for the best of BC camping need not look further. Rec sites offer a more rustic way to camp out in BC’s backcountry than formal provincial campgrounds. Your Northern BC Mapbook lists over 250 rec sites that were developed by forestry workers and are now maintained by BC’s Ministry of Tourism. From the Agate Point Picnic Site to the Wright Lake Rec Site, we put it all on the map.

ATV Adventures
With dramatic mountain terrain, endless backcountry, abandoned logging roads and mining sites, Northern BC is truly ATV country. Bigger communities like Prince George, Fort St. John, Dawson Creek and Prince Rupert offer tours, rentals, dealerships and often an ATV club. Our ATV Adventures section has been greatly refined and expanded from the last edition, with details on close to 60 of the region’s best riding areas, from popular runs like the Sibola Peak trails to the lesser known areas like the Core Lodge Area.

Snowmobile Adventures
From the Coast Mountain snowfields near Terrace, east to McBride in the Canadian Rockies, and through the communities of Chetwyn, Tumbler Ridge and the Peace River area, Northern BC is a snowmobiler’s paradise. The latest edition of this mapbook includes a refined and expanded Snowmobile Adventures section, with close to 70 listings for the best riding areas complete with access information, distances, elevation gains, highlights and more. From the Bickford Mountain Snowmobile Trails to the Morfee Mountain Trails, Pine Pass Trails and beyond, these maps point you to the best snowmobiling destinations in the region.
