Journey to York Factory, a huge fur trade era depot set in the remote Hudson Bay wilderness. This isolated post was a vital fur trade hub for more than 250 years and was the gateway to the vast interior for British trade goods, Hudson’s Bay Company employees, settlers and soldiers. Throughout the history of York Factory, the involvement of Indigenous peoples has been integral to the operation of York Factory and the fur trade. Let York Factory’s pristine setting and untouched spirit transport you back in time.
