Kitselas Canyon

The Skeena River is a photographers dream as it can be sunny and beautiful out or misty with cloud draped mountains.  One of the days on the tour we explore the  Skeena River above Terrace and the mighty Kitselas Canyon and home of the Kitselas First Nation.  The canyon was has one of the most difficult parts of the river for the paddle wheelers to navigate  as they did not have the power or maneuverability to get through it.  They used large ringbolts that were bolted into the an island in the middle of the canyon to winch themselves through the canyon.  We will explore ringbolt island and view the petroglyphs on the top of the island.  Another highlight of the day will be a tour of the historic totem poles and long houses of the Kitselas Historic site.  This day will be  another amazing experience!
