Laxgalts'ap: Where River Meets Sea

One of four Nisga'a communities, the village of Laxgalts'ap is located on the Nass River estuary, approximately 150 kilometers north of Terrace. Home to approximately 520 residents, Laxgalts'ap offers rich cultural history, natural beauty, and world-class fishing.

Laxgalts'ap means "village on village," an acknowledgement that the current village is built on a series of Nisga'a communities that have occupied this site for millennia.

Terrace is the closest community served by public transportation. Traveling to Laxgalts'ap requires driving the Nisga'a Highway (Highway 113). The two-lane highway is paved and passes through beautiful mountain valleys. There's lots of twists and turns, several single lane bridges and it's likely you'll see a few bears near (or on) the road in early May. Plan for a two and a half hour drive from the Terrace airport and enjoy the scenery.
