Valemount is just 20 minutes from Mount Robson Provincial Park on the Yellowhead Highway #5 from Kamloops to Edmonton, Alberta. Valemount BC, Canada, nestled at the base of Canoe Mountain, offers unparalleled natural beauty and quiet solitude. Valemount - "The Valley of the Mountains" is located in the Robson Valley with the Rocky Mountains to the east, The Monashee Mountains to the south and The Caribou Mountains to the west.

Nearby Mt. Robson Park is home to the highest peaks in British Columbia, with Mt. Robson towering above the valley at 3954 m., a 124 km (75 miles) drive along Highway 16 from Jasper, Alberta.

Valemount is on Highway 5, a few miles south of the junction of Highway 16 (known as the Yellowhead Highway) at Tete Jaune Cache and McBride is north west of the junction as you head towards Prince George.

Valemount - A Valley For all Seasons

Rest and relaxation can be found easily while canoeing or kayaking along the meandering streams or hiking into the majestic mountains that surround the valley. There are two challenging golf courses to play or you can simply browse the Valemount Museum to discover the history of the railroad and the valley.

For the adventurous, there is whitewater rafting on the mighty Fraser River, heli-hiking high up to the glaciers and alpine meadows or heli-fishing in the crystal clear mountain lakes.

Late summer brings the world's longest salmon migration to the spawning grounds of Swift Creek in the George Hicks Regional Park.

Amazing photo opportunities abound and nature tours are available. Watch for wildlife and bird watching is at its best in the Robert W. Starratt Wildlife Sanctuary, a 600 acre waterfowl habitat just minutes from town.

In Winter, heli-skiing adventure is close at hand as well as cross-country skiing and numerous snowmobiling trails are nearby. A wide variety of local amenities and quality accommodations are available.
