Connect with Canada’s interesting story year round: get the details of our daily programs and events online.
Rising from the mist of the Fraser River, the palisades of Fort Langley stand tall. Inside the walls, rough-hewn timber buildings recreate the rugged 1800s. See where Hudson’s Bay Company fur traders mingled with California gold prospectors and hear First Nations interpreters tell century-old tales. Feel the blast of the musket fire, pan for gold dust dreams and dress up to play a historic trading boss.
What to do?
Experience Fort Langley by night with oTENTik overnight adventures! oTENTik is a cross between an A-frame cabin and a prospector tent mounted on a raised wooden floor. This water resistant accommodation is built to withstand diverse weather conditions and no set-up is required by campers. Each of the five units inside Fort Langley’s historic walls represents the heritage of Fort Langley’s diverse workers. While Hudson’s Bay Company workers would be required to set up camp when travelling and bring their own supplies, we’ve done the work for you, no fuss no muss!
