ATLIN COMMUNITY

Tucked into the far Northwestern tip of British Columbia, the remote and spectacularly beautiful community of Atlin graces the Eastern shore of the mighty Atlin Lake, headwater of the Yukon River and named after the Tlingit word atlah, meaning 'Big Water' - very appropriate for the largest natural lake in the province.

Most of the year-round residents of Atlin have stayed for more than one reason, but in general, they quite simply want to live in one of the quaintest and most colourful little towns, nestled in the heart of a valley that is simply stunning in its beauty and grandeur.
