Canada's most northerly ice-free port, Stewart lies 200 km (124.3 mi.) north of Terrace. The Canadian town nestles across from Alaska's Misty Fjords National Park on the shores of the 90 mile long (144.8 km.) saltwater fjord known as the Portland Canal. Stewart's hey day was during the Gold Rush, when in 1910 it was home to 10,000 people, but its population has dwindled over the years to around 700 in 2000.

Stewart is in glacier country. Drive by several old gold mines on the road to the Salmon Glacier, the fifth largest glacier in North America. Or stop about 30 km on the road to Stewart to view the Bear Glacier, one of the world's few blue glaciers with easy access. Outdoors enthusiasts will enjoy the nearby Mount Edziza and Spatsizi Plateau Wilderness Provincial Parks. Fish Creek near Hyder, Alaska, offers uniquely northern views and photo opps of grizzly and black bears fishing for salmon. The town of Stewart is historic with many of its buildings originally from 1910. The former firehall is now home to the artifacts and movie props of the Stewart Historical Museum, open May to September. See props from Hollywood movies that have been filmed in the area, including Insomnia (2001) starring Al Pacino, Robin Williams, and Hillary Swank, and Bear Island (1978) starring Donald Sutherland, Vanessa Redgrave, Lloyd Bridges, and Christopher Lee. There's even a Toastworks Toaster Museum in town. Stewart and Hyder team up to present an International Days festival, including a scavenger hunt, craft sales, parades and fireworks, from July 1st through July 4th annually.
