What to See and Do



Drive to Stewart

The 65 km drive from Meziadin Junction to Stewart is breathtaking. “It looks like a scene from Jurassic Park,” “I stopped counting the waterfalls after 40,” and “I’ve been all over Canada and nothing compares to this drive – absolutely beautiful,” are some examples of what tourists passing through have said.

Salmon Glacier

Located on the Canadian side of the boarder beyond Hyder, about 37km (23 miles), you will come to the summit of the magnificent Salmon Glacier. The unpaved road leads you up to 4000’ elevation, journeying through rich forestry and past old mine sites, there is nothing you won’t love about this trip. Beyond the summit point, there is the Granduc Mine site and Happy Valley. Please note, these roads are not maintained and could possibly be closed due to active mining, please keep this in mind during your trip.

Please be advised that at this time due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the road to Hyder AK is closed to visitors. Currently only residents of Hyder AK can cross the border for essential services.
