One of the many interesting to things to see at Anyox on the Ghost Towns Tour is the small railway line and old cars that took the ores from the “Glory Hole” on the mountain above and down to the mine site. This was all done by rail. Most of the cars were shipped off when the mine closed but … Read More
There is nothing like cruising up a remote river or or to an ocean estuary. The Skeena region of BC is one the last untouched areas where there are untouched river valleys with no roads or development. The odds of seeing other boats or people is very low on some of the days.

We will do our best to provide the participants with an opportunity to photograph a grizzly bear. The odds of seeing one is quite good … Read More
