Since 2014, UNBC Continuing Studies has been offering awe-struck adventurers rare access to seldom-visited historic sites, remarkable wildlife, and stunning natural scenery that is distinctly Northern British Columbia.
We are passionate about providing rare opportunities and one-of-a-kind travel experiences and want you to leave our tours with a vast understanding of the region’s diverse history and memories to last a lifetime.
Witness grizzly bears feeding on sedge grass, learn about historic First Nations sites, roam through abandoned ghost towns, discover old trade routes and transportation methods, or take part in a biological study of ancient river sturgeon. Combining the knowledge of local experts with exclusive access to unique destinations and activities, Continuing Studies’ not-for credit tours will leave you with a spectacular story that is all your own.
“This tour was indeed one of the best travel and educational experiences that I have encountered. And travel is my passion.”
- Ron Paull, Ghost Towns of Northwest B.C. tour participant
"I have done many outdoor adventures, both guided and non-guided trips, and UNBC Continuing Studies runs one of the best I have ever experienced. The scenic beauty of Northern BC, one of the most beautiful places in the world, comes alive on this tour, and the Skeena River, steeped in history, provides the perfect way to travel and experience forgotten places, historic canneries and the inspiring First Nation cultural sites and stories.It is a place that will take you away but be warned as you will want to come back over and over."
- Matt Mosteller, outdoor adventurer and travel writer
