Welcome to Stewart-Cassiar Highway
The 700km Stewart-Cassiar Hwy (Hwy 37) is a viable and ever-more-popular route between BC and the Yukon and Alaska. But it's more than just a means to get from Hwy 16 (via Meziadin Junction) in BC to the Alaska Hwy in the Yukon (7km west of Watson Lake) – it's a window onto one of the largest remaining wild and woolly parts of the province. It's also the road to Stewart, a near-mandatory detour to glaciers, and more.
Gitanyow, a mere 15km north of Hwy 16, has an unparalleled collection of totem poles and you can often see carvers creating another.
