Are there currently restrictions on travel to Smithers related to COVID-19?

Yes, there are currently restrictions on flights to Smithers along with the rest of Canada. Before you book or search for flights, consider the following restrictions: Canada has restricted the entry of all foreign nationals. Travellers who are not Canadian citizens, permanent residents or people registered under the Indian Act may only enter Canada for essential purposes. Entrance will be denied to people travelling for tourism, sightseeing, recreation, entertainment, social visits or religious functions. Canadian citizens, permanent residents, their immediate family members, diplomats, airline crews, and travellers arriving from the United States who are travelling for non-discretionary or non-optional purposes may still enter Canada. Seasonal agricultural workers, fish/seafood workers, caregivers, temporary foreign workers, international students with valid study permits or approvals for study permits valid from at least 18 March 2020, and permanent resident applicants who received approval before 18 March 2020 who had not yet travelled to Canada, may still enter the country. Other people with special dispensation to enter Canada include French citizens who reside in Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon, people registered under the Indian Act, visa-exempt refugees and their immediate families, and those with special authorisation from the Canadian government. Travellers who exhibit symptoms will be prohibited from boarding planes that are destined for Canada. If they exhibit symptoms on arrival they will be referred to the Canadian Public Health Agency. Travellers who have been refused boarding in the past 14 days due to medical reasons related to COVID-19 may not enter the country. Travellers must self-isolate for 14 days upon arrival at their final destination in Canada. Travellers who disembarked from a cruise ship with a known COVID-19 outbreak like the ‘Diamond Princess’ will be required to remain in quarantine for 14 days at a location determined by the Chief Public Health Officer.. If you are looking to book a trip to Smithers and are outside of the restricted areas, please take the proper precautions and stay informed about travelling during COVID-19.

When is the best time to fly to Smithers?

The slopes range from beginner to expert, and offer consistent snow conditions with champagne powder guaranteed throughout the season.

Alternatively, visit between June and August when the average temperatures range from 19C to 22C, and the outdoors are in prime condition for exploring. The mountains are packed with striking vistas, as well as a range of animals including mountain goats, black and grizzly bears, moose and marmots. Back in town, be sure to visit Bulkley Valley Farmers’ Market, held every Saturday from early May to late September.

City overview

Despite being home to only 5,000 people, the charming mountain town of Smithers is a popular basecamp for skiing, fishing and all manner of outdoor excursion. The acclaimed ski resort of Hudson Bay Mountain lies 15 miles to the southwest, while Smithers and the Bulkley Valley are threaded with well-stocked fishing rivers and lakes. Riverside Park on the Bulkley River and Tyhee Lake are both located less than a 10-minute drive from the town centre, and the breathtaking hiking trails on Babine Mountains not far to the northeast.

The town itself has many attractions to catch the eye, including the Bavarian-style buildings that line the main street. Several independent coffeehouses and bakeries offer a casual retreat from the exertions of mountain life, while the town’s second-hand bookstore contains many literary treasures waiting to be explored. History is also very much a feature of the Smithers experience, with abandoned pioneer buildings still standing and open for exploration. Last, but far from least, be sure to visit local First Nations artists and crafters to learn more about the culture that first called this area home.

Getting around Smithers

Smithers is easily navigable on foot, but the city also offers public transport in the form of two, 24-seat buses. Skiers are also catered for as Hudson Bay Mountain is served by its own bus line, Dawn 2 Dusk Mountain Bus. Services run between the resort and the town throughout the day, with different pick-up and drop-off locations included. Be aware, though, that services only run on weekends, holidays and non-instructional days, so do not rely exclusively on this mode of transport.

Getting from the Airport to the City

The city is served by Smithers Airport (YYD), with flights to Vancouver operating throughout the year. Car rental is available at the airport, as are a number of private hire taxi firms.
