The northern interior region of British Columbia includes the Cassiar Mountain Range and some of Canada's most popular paddling rivers. With limited road access this area allows for some of the best remote adventure options in the country. Paddling expeditions on the Stikine and Babine Rivers offer some of the best scenery and wildlife viewing opportunities around. Wildlife populations abound here and are unparalleled in any other place in British Columbia. Caribou, Moose, Stone Sheep, Mountain goats, Elk (Wapiti), Wolves, Coyote, Lynx, Wild Fox, Wolverine, Marmots, and Marten, as well as a healthy population of Black and Grizzly bears can be found here. This mecca for wildlife is the reason the area is known throughout the world as the 'Serengeti of the North'.
This region also includes the remote Spatsizi Plateau Wilderness Provincial Park. A trip into a fly-in lodge in this park combines comfort and wilderness adventure. Unlimited angling opportunities are numerous in the local streams, rivers and lakes. Catch gorgeously marked Rainbows, free rising Arctic Grayling, trophy size Bull Trout, Rocky Mountain Whitefish and Lake Trout.
The Cassiar Highway is the main transportation route through this area. It passes through the Cassiar and Skeena Mountains, connecting the southern Yukon with the Yellowhead highway. The world famous Alaska Highway, with Mile 0 at Dawson Creek, winds it way along the Rocky Mountains, eventually crossing into the Yukon. This area includes the northern portion of the mighty Rocky Mountains and contains some of the most rugged and remote areas in this famous mountain range.
