The country around Fort Nelson is enormous, which makes it worthwhile to spend a few days exploring the surrounding area. Take advantage of the terrific camping and hiking at local regional and provincial parks. Boat into wilderness areas like the Muskwa, Fort Nelson, Prophet, and Racing rivers, or enter the back country by ATV on designated routes, by horseback, or by snowmobile.
