Haida Gwaii Info – Side Route
Haida Gwaii is a remote, beautiful, and wild chain of islands off the northern coast of British Columbia. The remoteness is part of its appeal: sprawling beaches, forests dense with growth and shaded by giant trees, and an abundance of wildlife, surrounded on all sides by the Pacific ocean. The Haida people call these islands home, and their history and culture is entangled in its incredible natural bounty and beauty.
Ride to the Prince Rupert Terminal at the west end of Route 16, 10 minutes south of the city of Prince Rupert and board the Northern Adventure – reservations are a must, so be sure to plan ahead. Cabins are available but limited on board and can be added at time of booking. Settle in for the ~8-hour (weather and sea dependant) voyage across the Hecate Strait to stunning Haida Gwaii.
