The Ghost Town of Anyox has all kinds of remnants from its days as a copper mine in the early 19th century but after the town was shut down in in 1935 and a fire roared through the town in 1942 the majority of the buildings that survived were the one made of steel and concrete. A jungly forest has grown up inside and out of the remains which makes the buildings even more eerie. Here are a few of the buildings and the concrete walls that still remain. If you are looking for a unique “Off the Beaten Path” adventure then check out our “The Town That Got Lost” Anyox Exploration June 3-4, 2017 or the “Ghost Towns of Northwest BC” tour August 21-27, 2017.

This is another new tour we have added this year and is guaranteed to fill up fast. We already visit the exclusive ghost town of Anyox on our 5 day tour but we have had a lot of requests for an extended exclusive visit to this 100 year old copper mining town.
This unique two day tour visits the remote and historic Mining Town of Anyox. We have special permission to explore this exclusive location on BC’s northcoast. The remoteness and history of this fabled town will amaze even those without an interest in the eerie past of these boom and bust communities.
Anyox which has been referred to as the “The Town that got Lost” was a once thriving mining town which had over 3000 residents in 1914. It has now been uninhabited for the past 80 years but what remains in this ghost town is truly amazing! Remains of Canada’s once largest dam, the Anyox Powerhouse, coke plant, steam plant, concentrator, smelter stacks, old railway cars, general store, cemetery, red light district, golf course, and more will keep us busy for two days. We are fortunate to be able to spend the night in this historic and eerie ghost town. Be one of only a handful of people to visit this town this year!
