Tourism PG warmly welcomes visitors and helps provide them with the best possible experience during their stay in Prince George. We are located along Highway 16 on the edge of downtown. Allow the knowledgeable staff to share with you why Prince George embodies the perfect balance of urban and wild, and how you can experience that for yourself. The Visitor Centre is brimming with information about northern BC and can help you plan the rest of your trip throughout the province, and a little beyond.
