Known as the Glacier Highway, this 110-kilometer (66-mile) drive is easily the best place to see glaciers up-close in all of North America. After traveling through a wealth of beautiful scenery ranging from soaring peaks to wild rivers, the drive reaches the historic towns of Steward and Hyder on the way to its thrilling climax in the last 15 kilometers (9 miles) where the Salmon Glacier Road climbs and traverses above a massive sea of ice. Drivers also have a chance to see bears fishing for salmon at the Fish Creek bear viewing area along the way. Special attractions: Meziadin Lake, the Blue Bear Glacier, the semi-ghost town of Hyder, the Fish Creek bear viewing area, old mines, the Salmon and Berenden Glaciers, the adventurous nature of the last part of the drive. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more.
