Akla's Stewart Page






Here at the junction you can make a left turn and go to Stewart B.C. or Hyder Alaska. Make a right turn and you are on your way to the Alaska Highway and the Yukon and other points North.

At the junction you will see a tourist booth where you can get some info on highway 37. The highway to Stewart/Hyder is perhaps one of the most scenic drives in North America. The highway follows the base of towering coastal mountains which are capped with icefields and patches of snow . Hundreds of waterfalls tumble down the beautiful mountain sides, while stately trees border the roadway.
