Kim and Alen Bouwmeester, owners of Crooked Lake Resort near Horsefly, in British Columbia’s Cariboo Mountains, talk about their dream of living and retiring in BC.
Adventure permeates the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast, a landscape of forests, fjords, peaks, and plains ranging across British Columbia from the Pacific Coast to the Cariboo Mountains.
See grizzlies at Tweedsmuir Provincial Park, fish one of the region’s many lakes, and follow the historic Gold Rush Trail to a recreation of the 1860s boomtown, Barkerville. If that doesn’t satisfy your appetite for exploring, ride horseback from Clinton into the backcountry, go small-town gallery hopping in Quesnel, or paddle the popular Bowron Lake Canoe Circuit.

When you visit BC's Cariboo Chilcotin Coast, the land and its people find a permanent place in your heart.
The Cariboo is wild, with open plains stretching in all directions. Rivers are wide, water is fresh, and history runs deep.
There’s more than gold to discover in this historic mining town from the 1860s.
Head north past Pemberton, when the road gets a bit bumpier and the landscape ruggedly beautiful, you’ve reached the edge of the South Chilcotins.
