Chetwynd is located in northeastern BC, in the foothills of the Northern Rocky Mountains. It sits at the junction between Highway 97 and Highway 29, and can be visited en route to northeastern BC and the Alaska Highway.
Travellers journeying north through Prince George on their way to the Alaska Highway will find that Chetwynd offers rich access to the outdoors, picturesque scenery, and many amenities for travellers. Don’t miss the Chetwynd chainsaw carvings, which have been part of Chetwynd culture since the completion of the Alaska Highway in the 1940s. There are over 120 chainsaw carvings located around town, some so intricate that it’s hard to believe they have been completed with chainsaws.
