  • Address: Fraser River
The longest river in British Columbia and the 10th longest river in Canada, the Fraser River rises at Fraser Pass near Mount Robson in the Rocky Mountains and flows for 854 miles (1,375 km) into the Strait of Georgia at the city of Vancouver. Known for white sturgeon and the most productive salmon fishery in the world, Fraser River has supported agricultural and community life for hundreds of years. 

More recently, Fraser River has become a host to a wide variety of recreational activities as well. Fishing, boating, whitewater rafting and other activities are common throughout the course of the river. In the basin as a whole, visitors can enjoy other backcountry activities such as hiking, camping, backpacking, cycling, birdwatching, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. As a scenic attraction, the Fraser River commands attention along many public byways including the Trans Canada and Yellowhead highways.

Practical Info

Fraser River is accessible by some of British Columbia’s major highways, as they run parallel to the river. There are many parks and trails that provide recreational access to the river throughout its length. Spring is the best time for activities such as whitewater rafting due to the glacial melt that raises the river’s level, but there are many recreational activities available throughout the year.
