Premier Listings for the Omineca Peace Region

The Omineca Peace Region covers the northeast corner of British Columbia, consisting of two distinctly different regons. The Omineca portion is more mountainous as it includes the beautiful Omineca Mountain Range, the BC Rocky Mountains, and the Rocky Mountain Trench, while the Peace Region is more open, with rolling rangeland.

The Rocky Mountains and their foothills dominate the Northeast, comprising roughly 20 million acres (8 million hectares). There are no roads that cross the range north of Pine Pass (between Mackenzie and Chetwynd) until the Yukon border. The Northern Rocky Mountains are the largest roadless landscape south of the 60th parallel, as well as one of the richest and most varied intact large wildlife ecosystems remaining in North America. The area’s wildlife population is so prolific that this portion of the Northern Rockies has been dubbed the Serengeti of North America.

If you venture off the road in the Omineca Peace Region, a world of recreational opportunities awaits, whether you’re a weekend adventurer or a trail-hardened backpacker. People who go out unprepared into this wilderness, however, don’t come back. Ignorance and arrogance in the face of nature are the surest ways of getting yourself killed. Come prepared, and enjoy the rich and varied wilderness, a place where people are scarce, but the exploits plentiful.

The Omineca Peace Region supports a rich biodiversity of fauna and flora, and the most remote network of backroads in BC, offering widespread access to working logging camps, mineral exploration sites, guide outfitters, and remote native towns. In the Omineca subregion alone there are more than 6,000 lakes, of which approximately 3,700 are considered to be productive for fish. Lakes in the Omineca Peace Region provide habitat for nearly 50 species of game fish and non-game fish.

Biographical Info

Awaken to the song of the Humpback whale. Fall asleep beneath the hushed canopy of a temperate rainforest. Fill your days whale-watching, kayaking with Orcas, observing sea lions romp through an underwater forest of kelp, and eagles fishing along the shore. Linger over lunch on a deserted island, scanning the horizon for signs of Orca activity.

Sign up for Ecosummer’s guided Orca Camps to kayak in the realm of Killer Whales. Explore the rainforest, hiking to waterfalls, or along ancient First Nation trails. Marvel when dolphins swim so close you wish you could reach out and touch them. Tune in to the rhythm of the tides. Escape the hubbub of your everyday world and restore life’s equilibrium on the shores of BC’s Johnstone Strait, one of the best places to whale-watch in all of British Columbia. Paddle the same waters as these gentle giants on three, four, or six-day kayaking adventures with Ecosummer Expeditions for a family vacation you’ll always remember.
