  • Historical site, is about the fur hunters and first merchants, trade between Europeans and Indians. In the town of white men who all lived with Indians women were married. It really seems on a small town in Western Europe ca. 1850. Worth it! Very special to on that spot to run and to realize how people there used to live. Some houses are still the original.

  • Lovley Place, Intresting, Stuff for kids as well. Bring somthing against mosquitoes and all will be well.
  • Great place to relax with the family and learn about BC history and fur trade in a real fort. Case in point, James Douglas, the first BC governor is a mulatto! The town center nearby boast several excellent restaurants and leisure strolls by the river.
  • A delightful historic site to spend a few hours. Kids will love the gold panning :)
  • Totally worth it. So many interactive and fun activities for the whole family. Schedule a good amount of time to tour the whole fort and fill out your activity book. Consider sleeping over in the Otentik or hosting your birthday here.
  • Great place to visit with kids! Lots of fun activities and very educational!
