  • “Smithers is the place to start your outdoor adventure. Whether you enjoy horseback riding, hiking, golfing, rafting, fishing or skiing – you will find your activity of choice here. Surrounded by mountains, dotted with lakes and divided by rivers and streams the Bulkley Valley wants to be explored. The history of the prospector can be found in the mountains in old mines and artifacts. Anglers can’t resist the temptation of trout, salmon and steelhead.”
