Nestled amid the breathtaking mountains and rushing rivers of northwest BC lies the friendly community of Terrace – home to the elusive Kermode bear, also known as the spirit bear because of its white coat. Terrace, which is known for its exceptional freshwater fishing, unique cultural heritage and scenic splendour, boasts outdoor activities including canoeing, hiking, skiing and wildlife viewing. Terrace is easily found on the spectacular Yellowhead Highway.
