Stewart is a mining town in British Columbia. Stewart is surrounded by breathtaking mountains, an emerald rainforest, clean fresh air and pure drinking water. And Stewart is one of the vital gas stations on the Stewart Highway to Alaska. The bear viewing platform and the Salmon Glacier near its twin town on the Alaskan side of the border, Hyder, are the main vistas.
The vast majority of visitors to Stewart arrive by car. To get to Stewart, take Route 37 until you hit Meziadin Junction, and then turn onto Route 37A. Stewart is about 4 hours from Terrace, 4 1/2 hours from Smithers, and 6 hours from Prince Rupert. If you are coming from a distant place, it is recommended that you fly to Terrace, Smithers, or Prince Rupert and rent a vehicle to get to Stewart.
Stewart Airport has a small landing strip for small planes. As of September 2015, no commercial airlines fly into or out of Stewart.
There is no public transportation in Stewart. The town of Stewart itself is small, and is easily navigable on foot. However, if you want to go across the border into Hyder, you'll need a car, as the border is quite far from downtown Stewart.
