Things to Do
Canoeing and camping along Bowron Lakes Circuit (Chris Harris photo)
Every year, the tiny community of Wells is visited by more than 10,000 RVers, campers and motorists from around the globe.
Visitors come to canoe the chain of lakes in Bowron Lake Provincial Park, to explore Barkerville Historic Town and other historic sites of the Cariboo gold rush days, and to visit many unique galleries and the artists who own them.
And while Bowron Lake Provincial Park, Barkerville and gold rush history are of vital importance to this community, there is more! The mountains surrounding the town are laced with hundreds of miles of trails that attract hikers in the summer, and skiers and snowmobilers in the winter time.
In addition, there is a vibrant community life which goes on throughout the year and many festivals and events are held here.
