Terrace Attractions

Sandman Hotel Group features properties located within a rich mosaic of neighbourhoods and surrounding areas, each with a distinct, welcoming personality. We have compiled a list of useful information below to enhance your stay.


Sitting along the mighty Skeena River amidst gorgeous green forests, rugged mountains and cliffs, Terrace (population: 11,320) is the perfect central base for all outdoor pursuits.

In the summer, hike, mountain bike, camp, rock climb, canoe, or kayak – all in one day if feeling adventurous. Salmon fishing is also especially popular here.

In the winter, huge dumps of snow make for incredible deep powder downhill skiing and snowboarding, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling.

Outdoor ice-skating on the lakes is also possible when the weather is cold enough and the snow has been cleared. Local hot springs, developed and undeveloped, also make for fine evening soaks.

In the evening, to get a feel for local culture, check out Terrace's many pubs and restaurants. For entertainment and maybe dancing, see local musicians perform at the town's various coffee houses or at the bar on the weekends.
