British Columbia Travel Guide
The unofficial BC Travel & Tourism Guide
The Village of McBride is nestled between the Caribou Mountains on one side and the majestic Rocky Mountains on the other. It is a hub for an infinite variety of outdoor recreation opportunities. Located in a wide valley, Mc Bride has rich farmland bordering the Fraser. The river, fed by countless streams, winds through the valley bottom.
The Robson Valley's exceptional scenery and recreation opportunities draw back packers, anglers and white water enthusiasts. Many hiking trails lead to a breathtaking view wherever you look. The area is a birdwatcher's delight with waterfowl of all kinds; over 175 species of birds have been recorded at nearby Horseshoe Lake. World-class heli-skiing and heli-hiking on the higher peaks around McBride are just as popular as snowmobile trails and cross-country skiing. Together they make the Robson Valley a favourite spot for winter recreation.
McBride is home to many accomplished artists, artisans, craftsman, musicians and performers, who together offer a rich cultural experience. The Roundhouse Theatre hosts performing artists and musicians.
McBride is the first B.C. community on the Yellowhead Highway, a town with a long history tied to the railroads and forestry. At Koeneman Park, only minutes from town, visitors can see a homesteader’s hand-built log home.
McBride is two hours south of Prince George International Airport, on the rail line directly to the port city of Prince Rupert, and six hours from Edmonton.
