The Stikine River is located South East of Petersburg, and North East of Wrangell. Known as the “fastest-flowing navigable river in North America,” the Stikine forms a natural waterway from northern interior British Columbia to the Pacific coast. This river has been used by indigenous peoples including the Tlingit and Tahitian for fishing, hunting and trade. It was used by prospectors and fur traders in the 1800s and remained an important transportation route up until 1970, when more roads were finally opened up into the northern interior. Tag along as this video shows you some of the Stikine Rivers powerful beauty, and the adventures you can have while exploring it.
