STEWART, BRITISH COLUMBIA TRIP
Summer 2022 - 40th Anniversary Celebration!
A tentative group trip to Stewart, British Columbia in Canada to visit the filming location and celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the film in the summer of 2022. We'll spend a few days in the border towns of Stewart and Hyder exploring the site on which can still be found the scattered remains of the Outpost #31 camp set and wreckage of the Norwegian helicopter. The Outpost #31 site can be accessed as a starting point from the city of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. From there either flying or driving north to the city of Terrace. From Terrace it is a 4 hour drive up to the town of Stewart which sits on the Alaska border across from Hyder. The site itself is another 45min drive north of the border towns on Salmon Glacier Road at kilometer marker #38. (If you are planning to go solo we highly recommend you contact us first as the site is tricky to find and inaccessible from October through May.)
NOTE/UPDATE: This trip is open to all, but it is not officially run or organized by Outpost31.com. There is no longer a trip roster or email list. Everyone is responsible for planning their own travel/accommodations/safety/liability, etc. The location is quite remote and located in the far north. If you have questions and would like to meet and interact with other fans who are going please join our active FB Group.
