    Coastal Ranges ahead on Terrace-Prince Rupert Hwy

    Once we were in Terrace, we never used our car at all. My brother’s spacious AWD 4-door Dodge Dakota pickup truck was the vehicle of choice as we were toured around the area in comfort. It provided a very smooth ride and it was also great to be sitting so much higher off the road for visibility. With its extra ground clearance and all wheel drive capability, it was perfect for getting off the main highways onto logging roads as we explored various sightseeing attractions in the forests along the banks of the steep Skeena River valley. For getting to and from Terrace, our old Honda Accord worked perfectly as we drove along the TransCanada Highway on cruise control, moving with the rest of the light traffic at a little over the speed limit of between 90-110 kph, depending on what section of the road we were on. Because of the distances involved in the trip (5000-km in about 5 days of driving), we rarely stopped during the daytime, except for gasoline and ‘to go’ lunchtime meals. The highways were excellent in both the Terrace area and while getting there and back. Your only real options for getting to Terrace are either driving or flying into their very nice airport, located off Highway 37 just a few kilometers from the city. It is also possible to take an expensive ferry ride into Prince Rupert from lower BC and then drive the short distance east to Terrace.
