Nestled beneath “the mountain,” Smithers, BC is a vibrant community and home to about 5000 hardy souls who choose Smithers as their home for the quality of life it offers. The beauty of this area and easy access to untouched Northern BC wilderness attract people from all over the world.

With air, rail, & bus service, Smithers, British Columbia is easy to get to, yet remote and peaceful.

Because of our distance from major centers Smithers offers all the services you would ever want. Seven outdoor shops, three bookstores, and many great coffee shops might give you an idea about what the locals think is important. Our downhill and cross-country ski areas, which enjoy lots of natural dry powder, are within 20 minutes of town. Hiking trails, peaceful canoe routes or exciting whitewater rivers are a short drive away too.

The famous steelhead run which starts in September makes this month the busiest time and our red brick sidewalks on Main Street are filled with fishermen from South America, New Zealand, Europe and the US.
