World’s Tallest Totem Pole in Alert Bay

Head to Alert Bay, on the northeast coast of Vancouver Island, for some incredible First Nations history. Aside from being home to the world’s tallest totem pole (173 ft.), Alert Bay also boasts the gorgeous Big House, the ceremonial meeting place of the ‘Namgis. And be sure to check out the collection of memorials and totem poles in the Old ‘Namgis Burial Ground (but out of respect, stay off of the grass).
