British Columbia Circle Tours & Driving Tours

2 or more days (departing from Prince George)

Pack your fishing pole, an extra big lunch and a sense of adventure because once in the "Land of a Thousand Lakes" you won't want to return home. Begin by picking up a few good maps at the BC Forest
District Offices or the Visitor Information Centre in Burns Lake.

Burns Lake is situated on Highway 16, deep in the region of Northern BC. From Prince George, travel west on Highway 16 to Burns Lake (226 km/141 miles). Head south to the Southbank Ferry (23 km/14 miles). Turn east for a tour along the resort shores of Francois Lake.

Burns Lake

There are numerous BC Forest recreation sites in this area with trails linking many of the lakes. The Francois and Ootsa Lakes are two of the largest lakes in this district, and there are several private operators who offer fishing tours.

From Francois Lake, follow the Morice River back to Highway 16 at Houston. It is another 81 km/51 miles back to Burns Lake.
