Overview of the Northern B.C. region

This region covers more than half of the province, an area twice the size of the United Kingdom. It also includes the Queen Charlotte Islands. These remote islands are very popular for paddling or sailing around, and are considered the Galapagos of Canada for supporting many rare species and sub-species of black bear, birds, small mammals, plants, and invertebrates. The islands have also become known for their well-preserved ancient Haida Indian sites.
The mainland area, with its sparse population is home to many nature parks and wilderness areas. Many tourists fly into this area for hunting and fishing.
