The natural homelands of the First Nations people. A major city with over 120 parks. Great bird watching, walking and cycling opportunities. An unrivalled glimpse into the cultural traditions of a fascinating region.
Prince George has many of the familiar aspects of a modern world city; happening restaurants and cafés, busy shopping streets, contemporary architecture and fine sight-seeing. But how many cities have over 120 different parks? And not just the duck pond and bandstand-style parks of England; this being Canada, Prince George’s parks are on an entirely different scale. The Forests of the World Park, for example, offers you the chance to experience a complete forest getaway, just a short drive from the city centre. Lake and mountain landscapes included!
Also available is a rare insight into the history and culture of the First Nations people. On Prince Rupert and Queen Charlotte Islands you’ll find thriving communities with a fine reputation for continuing their cultural identities through art and crafts. The ‘Ksan Historical Village presents historic as well as contemporary overviews, including a replica village, totem poles, museum and even a restaurant serving traditional Gitxsan dishes.
