Hudson's Hope Community
Hudson’s Hope is located on the bank of the Peace River in the Rocky Mountain foothills of British Columbia, 90 kilometres west of Fort St. John and 66 kilometres north of Chetwynd on Highway 29. A uniquely progressive and safe community, Hudson’s Hope is the third oldest European community in British Columbia. It is steeped in fur trading history, dating back to the late 1700s and the days of Alexander Mackenzie and the North West Company.
The area is also one of the richest sites of fossils and dinosaur footprints in the world. The Hudson’s Hope museum fossil display is the finest collection in the Peace River area. The history of the area is represented by artifacts from the early trapping, coal and placer mining industries.
The fishing in our area is excellent, with lakes and rivers full of Rainbow Trout, Arctic Grayling, White Fish, Lake Trout, Dolly Varden and Northern Pike. Magnificent scenery, an abundance of wildlife including bear, wolf, stone sheep, elk, moose, deer and bald eagles create unlimited ecological and sight seeing opportunities. Hudson’s Hope offers a wide range of outdoor recreational activities
including excellent fishing, boating, water skiing, canoeing, hunting,
camping, hiking, swimming, sailing and wildlife viewing.
