The town of Lillooet (population: 2,324) is spread along a grassy bench of land overlooking the mighty Fraser River.
It is set against a backdrop of the Coast Mountains – a varied terrain ideal for fishing, canoeing, hiking, mountain biking, snowmobiling, and ice climbing. The abundant surrounding wilderness also provides incredible wildlife viewing and bird watching. Lillooet's spectacular geography is accompanied by a rich culture and history experienced today at heritage sites and on cultural tours.
