Touch Canada’s cultural past…and present

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.

  • Although we bothered Lydia on several occasions over small matters, she was always patient and very helpful. The whole organisation from Heathrow and back was seamless and first class. Game watching on this trip surpassed all that we had seen before in the one trip. Our thanks to Ultimate yet again
