From the East
Depending on your origin and other variables, such as construction, your exact route may vary. However, from Kamloops onwards the most common route into the Fraser Valley will be via BC-5 through Merritt and into Hope (the Yellowhead Highway, also known as the Coquihalla Highway from Kamloops to Hope). The Fraser Valley can also be accessed via BC-3 via the Okanagan or TC-1 via the Fraser Canyon.
Depending on your destination within the Fraser Valley, car travel takes approximately 60 to 90 minutes from Downtown Vancouver. From where you are staying in the city, head east on the Trans-Canada Highway. The Fraser Valley can also be accessed via BC-99, or BC-17.
The Fraser Valley is located less than 2.5 hours north of Seattle. From downtown Seattle, merge onto Interstate 5 northbound toward Vancouver. At Bellingham, take exit 256A-256B for the Aldergrove-Bellingham Highway/ BC-13. This road will take you to the USA/ Canada border crossing and into the Fraser Valley. Don’t forget your passport!
