309 5th Street - Stewart, BC
From the junction of the Yellowhead Highway 16 and BC 37N, travel north for 153 km. Head west on Glacier/Stewart Highway BC 37A W, in 60 km you will reach Stewart, BC.
Stewart sits at the head of the Portland Canal, a steep, narrow ocean fjord that forms a natural boundary between BC and Alaska. Set against towering peaks with hundreds of scenic waterfalls cascading down their sides, Stewart is Canada’s most northerly ice-free, deep-sea port.
The Glacier Highway 37A links Stewart with Highway 37, winding past the spectacular mountains and hanging glaciers of Bear Pass. The glacier’s allure of ancient blue ice sparkles like a diamond. Meltwater forms the headwaters of Bear River. World-famous bear watching, glacier tours, and scenery place this trip on many a person’s ‘bucket list.’
The economy of Stewart is supported by a varied range of industries, including logging, mining and mining exploration. Stewart Port delivers easy and fast access to Asian Pacific markets, and it is a viable alternative to Prince Rupert and Vancouver. Shorter turnaround times and private storage and loading facilities make Stewart the port of choice in northern BC.
Alaska State Ferries regularly sail between Stewart and Ketchikan, Alaska, in the summer. At Ketchikan, the ferries head north to Skagway, and south to Prince Rupert.
Due to its proximity to the ocean, the climate has strong maritime influences, with winters being far milder than locations farther inland.
A stone storehouse, built in 1896, marks the border between BC and Alaska. Visitors to Stewart can’t resist popping over the border to the fascinating town of Hyder, ‘The Friendliest Ghost Town’. July 1st to the 4th marks North America’s longest birthday party when both border towns participate in a joint community celebration.
Stewart and Hyder have become recognized as a filming hotspot in the northwest on another interesting side note. Five major Hollywood films have been partially or completely shot in this area. The scenery is regularly used as a backdrop for commercials. The area is also rich with stories of extra-terrestrials, mountain tales and mining lore.
The Stewart/Hyder area offers an excellent range of outdoor recreational opportunities. Charter boats and guides explore the waters of the Portland Canal to fish for salmon or halibut, or down the Canal into an eco-paradise filled with bears, porpoise, mountain goats and eagles.
The bountiful waters of the Portland Canal are popular with anglers seeking salmon, halibut, shrimp and crabs. Freshwater fishing for Dolly Varden and steelhead are also excellent in local streams and lakes. There’s whitefish, rainbow trout, and Dolly Varden fishing at Meziadin Lake. Meziadin Lake Provincial Park has a boat launch, but the best fishing is off the gravel bars at the mouths of many of the creeks that drain into the lake.
The incredible amount of snowfall the region receives from mid-November to mid-March ensures a long, sometimes even year-round (at higher elevations), snowmobiling season. Stewart’s dense coastal snowpack and easily accessible, uncrowded landscape create a prime snowmobiling environment. Deep alpine bowls and steep glaciers pose an exhilarating and challenging terrain for adrenaline seekers.
Many deep-powder enthusiasts return to Stewart year after year for one purpose only—to board a helicopter and make fresh tracks in Stewart’s endless mountain terrain. Heli-skiing provides an incredible mountain adventure for intermediate to advanced skiers.
Dreams of gold and silver brought the first pioneers to Stewart long ago. Formerly called Portland, the name changed to Stewart to eliminate confusion with Portland in Oregon.
Before World War 1 and before the stock market crash of 1929, Stewart was a boomtown of more than ten thousand people. It was the base for those working in the enormous rich Premier gold and silver mine, the Big Missouri Mine and the Riverside Mine. The town’s colourful history is chronicled in the Stewart Historical Museum and several restored heritage buildings marked by historical signage.
