About British Columbia

Bordered by the Pacific coast to the West, and Rocky Mountains to the East, British Columbia offers a range of amazing options for the adventure traveler. Dramatic seascapes, beaches, rainforests and mountains merge into the perfect year-round playground in the most temperate climate in Canada.

To the coast, Vancouver Island is well-known for its bear viewing, whale watching, birding, salmon fishing, sailing and kayaking. Parks and natural areas are found throughout the area offering complete solitude and undisturbed ecosystems. Coastal lodges offering complete comfort in amazing locations are the perfect base for fishing or wildlife adventures.

Continuing northward along the coast is Prince Rupert, home to world-renowned saltwater and freshwater angling opportunities. This region also includes the picturesque Haida Gwaii, which because of its isolation and unique biodiversity, is considered by many to be the Pacific Northwest coasts "Galapagos Islands". The dramatic scenery and abundance of wildlife make this area the perfect location for kayaking, wildlife watching and small cruise expeditions.

A wealth of mountain ranges dominates the landscape of the Interior. The Rocky Mountain Range, home to popular Banff National Park and Willmore Wilderness Provincial Park, gateways to some of the best fishing, white water rafting, horseback riding, wildlife watching, and skiing anywhere in the world. Closer to the coast, the Chilcotin Mountains are one of the best-kept secrets in British Columbia. In the summertime, these alpine meadows are rich in wildflowers, bears, wolves, cougars and moose. The Thompson - Okanagan region is another popular vacation destination, known for its varied landscape, vineyards, cycling routes and some of the best whitewater rafting in Canada. In BC’s southeastern corner, the Kootenay offers alpine hiking and powder skiing at some of the most remote backcountry lodges in the world and rivals the scenery of their Rocky Mountain neighbors.
