  • The road to go is accessible to all types of vehicles. Consider the flyer to the information service of the city of Stewart to make the journey by stage. For the glacier do not hesitate to wait in the car to make the fog come up ;-)

  • This is an absolutely breathtaking place way up in the mountains. Although the glacier is in Canada you must pass through Hyder Alaska to get there. So be sure to have your passport handy. This is also a highlight of the trip. Hyder is a cosy little American town that makes you feel like you’ve stepped back in time. The people are friendly and there’s a variety of shops to browse. The glacier itself is beautiful, and almost seems never ending. Lots of dirt roads to explore and old mines. Just used caution and your own common sense with discretion while exploring the area.
  • This is hands down one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen! Be sure to drive the road in the summer, as conditions are the best. It is SO worth the drive. The glacier is like nothing you’ve ever seen before. Pure magic!
  • Keep going past Hyder Alaska, you will return into British Columbia and view one of the most spectacular glaciers in the world.
  • Spectacular location, worth the trip!
  • Nice! You should get there before noon to get a nice photo with Glacier in Sunny.
