Once known as the Place of Skulls to ward off intruders, the Village of Ging̱olx is now renowned for its warm hospitality. Considered the seafood capital of the Nisg̱a’a Nation, Ging̱olx is located in a dramatic coastal setting on Portland Inlet. It offers rich cultural history, natural beauty, and some of North America’s finest seafood, including crab, halibut, snapper, shellfish, and salmon.
Stroll the Sea Walk, rent or launch your own kayak, take a guided fishing, cultural, or wildlife-viewing tour. Visit Ging̱olx Christ Church, built in 1900, known for its unique history and beautiful stained-glass windows. Hike local trails that lead to spectacular viewpoints. Tour a community smokehouse where visitors can learn from Nisg̱a’a elders how to smoke and sun-dry oolichan, salmon, and sea lion.
