Get a taste of the Cariboo's western flair and its rich gold rush history by traveling any of the numerous driving routes that pass through the region. 

Be sure to take time for activities such as fishing, visiting parks, wildlife watching, horseback riding, bird watching, camping or stopping in at historic sites.

Self-Guided Driving Tours

Follow the Coast Cariboo Circle Route from the lush green coastline to the rolling Chilcotin Plateau and Cariboo mountain peaks. Admire ancient hoodoos along the way.

Discover the region's rich history by touring along the Gold Rush Trail and the Heritage Discovery Circle Route. Use the BC Ferries Route to easily access the labyrinth of islands and rugged shorelines of BC's central coast.

Guided Adventure Tours

Take to the rapids with a whitewater rafting excursion or paddle the iconic Bowron Lake Canoe Circuit. Fly-in fishing tours lead to remote wilderness lakes, and guided bear watching tours search for the elusive Kermode (Spirit) bear. Horseback riding, flightseeing and bird watching are other some activities to experience with a guide.
