The history of Kitimat, British Columbia, extends back only to the 1950s, when it was built by the Alcan Smelters and Chemical Company. You can get a feel for the area's industrial character by taking a tour of the Alcan smelter plants or Ocelot's methanol plant. Located 885 mi/1,425 km northwest of Vancouver, Kitimat is also the end point of a lovely drive. Between it and Terrace (to the north), you'll find wonderful scenery and several opportunities for hiking, fishing (Lakelse Lake) and deep-sea fishing charters (in the Douglas Channel). You can also visit a salmon hatchery.
