The Cariboo Chilcotin Coast's waterways, natural trails and wilderness paths all lead to unforgettable adventures.

Explore volcanic mountains, paddle world-renowned canoe routes, discover ancient sandstone formations and view lava-layered canyon walls. You'll have plenty of company – the wildlife sightings in this region are spectacular. Look for grizzlies or the elusive white Kermode (Spirit) bear on a bear watching tour, or take to the Pacific Ocean and see dolphins, Orcas and humpback whales on a whale-watching tour.

Parks in this region offer landscapes ranging from dry, rolling grasslands to lush coastal rainforests. There are options for easy day trips or challenging treks, such as the famous Bowron Lake Canoe Circuit or the historic Alexander Mackenzie/Grease Heritage Trail.
