Smithers is another town that is classified as a good week-end get-away as it’s a reasonably short drive from Kitimat. Well, when I say short drive I mean 3 or 4 hours depending on how many photos you stop to take along the way!
It’s a beautiful little place with both a very artsy and health-conscious community with organic, wholesome products easily obtained here. One just has to remember to take an esky or chilli box with one when visiting… that’s all!
In summer there’s loads to do with the markets, kayaking, hiking and biking to name a few, then come winter, I here it’s a brilliant place to ski, both downhill and cross-country. Or as one friend highly recommends in the winter, sitting in a cabin with a bottle of wine beside the fire – sounds good to me!
And of course, you can always take the train to Smithers!
