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!
