Enter for a Chance to Win an epic adventure to Northern BC! 

See Northern BC’s vast wilderness, enchanting wildlife, and rural charm on an Inside Passage Wilderness Circle Tour with BC Ferries Vacations™, Northern BC Tourism, and Tourism Prince Rupert.

Travel up the coast of Vancouver Island, exploring seaside communities on the way to Port Hardy, where you’ll embark on a cruise through the famed Inside Passage. Once in Prince Rupert, depending on the season you can either join Prince Rupert Adventure Tours to venture into the Khutzeymateen Provincial Park to watch grizzly bears, or witness breaching orcas, and humpback whales in their natural habitat. After, explore one of the many gorgeous trails like Butze Rapids, visit the Museum of Northern BC, or shop the funky downtown shops. To complete the trip, drive through charming rural towns and stunning landscapes in Smithers & Prince George, before arriving at Williams Lake where you can learn about the Gold Rush era.
