Known as a "City in the Country", Abbotsford is blessed with British Columbia's richest agricultural lands, family-friendly hospitality and sophisticated urban amenities.
It's also a year-round destination packed with outdoor activities like hiking, mountain biking, fishing, and golf.
Location and Access
Nestled on the flatlands between the Coast and Cascade mountain ranges, Abbotsford (pop. 135,000) lies in the heart of the Fraser Valley, 68km/42mi east of Vancouver and just 5km/3mi from the US border. While Hwy 1 connects the community east and west, its airport has put Abbotsford on the international map. For many tour operators and regional airlines, Abbotsford is an alternate arrival/departure point to Vancouver's International Airport.
