Search Atlin British Columbia

Established during the gold rush of 1898, Atlin acquired a world wide reputation by the 1920's. Located at British Columbia's largest natural lake, it became a destination for elite travellers who arrived aboard the M.V. Tarahne (which now rests on the lake shore) providing daily tours.

Though the Tarahne no longer sails, visitors can rent comfortable house boats or power boats, guide included, if desired. The fishing here is great, and even today gold miners work the creeks, as can visitors. The area also offers charter flights (for majestic views), a museum and a walking tour. Walking and hiking are popular here, as are gold nugget jewelry, arts, and crafts. Amenities include modern accomodations, restaurants, stores & other services.
