Traveling north from Fort Nelson along the Alaska Highway, encounter Steamboat Mountain, one of the first of many breathtaking sights. Follow the winding grade to take in views of the Muskwa River Valley and Northern Rockies Mountains, independently impressive in each of the four seasons. Take time to spot Indian Head Mountain, located at Mile 343 (KM 552), ahead and to the right of the highway, resembling the profile of a face, so named during the construction of the highway.

  • "SUBJ1Fort Nelson is located on the Alaska Highway in British Columbia s Northern BC region and was the original Mile 0 for the Alaska Highway. Contrary to popular belief, the construction for the Highway began here. This was because there was already a road connecting it to Fort St John. Just like Dawson Creek, this area was originally a small farming community. This was before the hurried construction of the Alaska Highway transformed it into a boom town. The region has a rich heritage that can be explored at the Fort Nelson Heritage Museum. The region is also rich in natural landscape, with many stunning mountains and lakes. Steamboat Mountain is over 1,000 meters (3,500 ft) high, commanding an incredible view of the Muskwa River Valley. Summit Lake is the highest point on the Alaska Highway at nearly 1,300 meters (4,250 ft). Together with the scenic Stone Mountain there are many hiking trails. Whether you re captivated by big animals, fur-bearers, birds, the exquisite beauty of an alpine flower or a delicate orchid species flourishing near the hot springs you will be amazed by the wonderful photo opportunities in this region. For the diversity and abundance of its wildlife, this part of British Columbia has been called the Serengeti of the North. "
