In British Columbia, a region rich with national and provincial parks, Tweedsmuir provides the types of challenges a true wilderness adventurer needs. Infrequently patrolled by park staff and rarely attempted by the casual tourist, Tweedsmuir is the kind of experience that is truly fulfilling as long as you make the necessary preparations and take precautions for safety. This means being particularly cautious about grizzlies and scouting out river conditions ahead of time if you'll be kayaking or canoeing.
Some highlights of the park include the Turner Lake Canoe Circuit, a 4-day canoe trip that includes seven lakes and their connecting passages; Hunlen Falls, an epic drop of 401 continuous meters (1,316 feet) of water; and the Rainbow Range, where a leg of the quite lengthy and visually extraordinary Alexander MacKenzie Heritage Trail that weaves through Heckman Pass can be tackled in a few hours time. As you may suspect that is as off-the-beaten-track as it gets in the already adventure-rich Canadian wilderness. For more information, including how to get there and where to camp, we've included the official government website.
