Smithers, British Colombia – A Favorite Spot for Adventurers

Smithers, British Columbia

Tucked in gorgeous Bulkley Valley, in the shadow of Hudson Bay Mountain and surrounded by three mountain ranges, it’s no surprise that Smithers is a favorite stop for adventurers and outdoor enthusiasts. The downtown has an alpine theme, which has led it to be dubbed ‘Little Switzerland’ (see photos below). We found our favorite brewery in Canada during our brief stay in Smithers (Smithers Brewing).

Since the town is located along the Trans-Canadian Highway, you’ll meet many adventurers making the trek through Canada and Alaska there, plus find a number of free places around the city to boondock.
