The Jewel of the Yellowhead
Folks have been calling Blue River the Jewel of the Yellowhead since long before roads marked it the midway point on a 12-hour journey from Vancouver to Edmonton. Sparkling glacier-fed lakes, breathtaking mountain peaks and intriguing wildlife are just some of the jewels in our crown. Our location in the North Thompson Valley makes Blue River a natural stop for a Yellowhead picnic, a heli-ski vacation, or a snowmobile expedition. Unlimited lakes, rivers, streams and waterfalls beckon you to relax and enjoy the pristine wilderness.
