Immerse yourself in the culture and history of the local First Nations – the people who have lived in this area for thousands of years.
- In Klemtu, you can tour culturally significant sites and visit a big house, the traditional community gathering place built by west coast First Nations.
- From Bella Coola, you can take a guided forest hike to view ancient petroglyphs or watch a Nuxalk carver at work.
- The Museum of Northern B.C. in Prince Rupert offers significant cultural exploration.
- Consider hiring a local guide and cultural interpreter. Tourism provides a number of communities with income from the Great Bear Rainforest and we anticipate that this sector will grow over time.
