Chetwynd

The Alaska Highway Connector

Nestled in the picturesque foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Chetwynd is the Southern gateway to Peace River country. Located in the fertile Pine River Valley and surrounded by jagged snow-covered mountains, this land of friendly people welcomes visitors. The scenic Chetwynd area is rich in oil, gas and timber products. Local resource and manufacturing industries reflect these assets. Within 30 minutes of downtown are two provincial parks with beautiful lakes excellent for swimming, fishing and camping.
