WAC Bennett Dam ToursChetwynd
The WAC Bennett Dam is located 90 minutes north of Chetwynd. Take Highway 29 North to Hudson’s Hope, and then head west on Canyon Drive to reach the dam. It’s a must-see engineering feat in northern British Columbia. Tours are offered daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the summer months.
You can enjoy the view of the Williston Lake Reservoir from the Visitor Centre at the Dam. There’s also a small café where refreshments are served. There is a small fee to tour the dam. Tours travel some 500 feet underground where you can see the inner workings of the powerhouse. The dam is closed to public tours from September through Victoria Day Weekend.
