Escorted Rail Tours to Prince George

Enjoy the picturesque Nechako and Fraser Rivers

One of British Columbia's largest cities, Prince George is situated at the confluence of the mighty Nechako and Fraser Rivers. The area first began to develop in 1807 when a fur-trading post was established in the vicinity, aiming to capitalise on the convenient transport opportunities. It was named Fort George after King George III, and was a great commercial success. It was therefore no surprise when the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway announced plans to route the railway close to the town.

The line was positioned to serve a few small communities in the region, which were then all amalgamated into the new city of Prince George in 1914. Surrounded by dense woodland, Prince George enjoys a picturesque setting and is a popular place to visit. With its lively downtown, the city is a firm favourite as an overnight stop on the Skeena train.
