One of the highlights on our Jet Boat Photography Tour and Ghost Towns of Northwest BC is the Kitselas Canyon visit. The Kitselas Canyon National Historic Site has some amazing cultural features such as petroglyphs, totem poles, culturally modified trees, long houses, canyon viewing platform and archaeological remains. The Kitselas or “People of the Canyon” have resided in the canyon for thousands of years and there is no better person than Cultural Resource person and Kitselas member Web Bennett to provide a tour of the site and answer any questions about the history. Web is an expert in the local Kitselas history and has many stories about the past.
We provide a unique perspective when arriving for our visit to the Canyon as we arrive via Jet Boat after running the guest through the historic canyon. After doing this you get a real appreciation for how the first nations navigated the canyon by canoe and then later on how the Stern wheelers made their way through.
Here are a few photos of the Kitselas Historic site.
