Situated in the southern part of the Haida Gwaii archipelago, about 100 kilometres off the coast of British Columbia, Canada, Gwaii Haanas is a place where the water and the land have always been inseparable. Against the backdrop of the San Christoval Mountains, which form the islands’ backbone, the view from Mount Yatza (2320m) celebrates one of the few places on earth where an area is protected from mountain tip to sea floor.
