Hudson’s Hope is situated on the bank of the Peace River as it flows out to the Rocky Mountain foothills of NE British Columbia. This town of about 1100 people is located on highway 29, 90 km west of Fort St. John and 66 km north of Chetwynd.
This part of the beautiful Peace River Valley has an abundance of wildlife and offers a wide range of outdoor activities, including boating, fishing, hunting, hiking, atv’ing, golfing, x-country skiing.
The area also has some of the richest sites of fossils and dinosaur footprints in the world.
Hudson’s Hope is one of the oldest settlements in BC, so if history is your thing, try the local museum for displays of artifacts from the pioneer days, including the trapping coal and placer mining industries.
