Telkwa lies in the beautiful Bulkley River Valley, surrounded by snow capped mountains. To the west of the Village, are the Telkwa and Bulkley Ranges of the Hazelton Mountains and to the east, is the Babine Range of the Skeena Mountains. With its magnificent towering ranges and extensive offering of year-round outdoor activities, Telkwa is an endearing place to visit and play.
The pristine rivers in Telkwa attract water sport adventures and are excellent for fishing, canoeing, kayaking tubing or rafting. Bordering the Village of Telkwa is the Tyhee Provincial Park, which conveniently offers a campground, swimming, hiking, walking, bird viewing, a boat launch, paddle board rentals and a picnic site during the summer.
The Telkwa Pass is an excellent ATV route, which was awarded bronze for “most challenging ATV area” and silver for “most scenic ATV area” by RidersWest Magazine in 2012.
Snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are welcome activities when the snow falls. When the conditions are right, winter ice skating on the expansive Tyhee Lake is a must!
We invite you to explore our friendly Village. Whether you stay for a few days, or just visit for the day to enjoy our beautiful riverfront walks and numerous trails, watch fisherman try their luck, or float down the river, you will be sure to enjoy your time spent with us.
