Biking in the Fraser Valley

Icon-PopularAreas-FraserValleyA wide river valley patchwork of barns, dairies, and fields flanked by steep mountains, southwestern British Columbia’s Fraser Valley is about agriculture. It is the source for anything farm fresh, plus wineries, microbreweries, golf courses, sturgeon and salmon fishing.

Beyond the valley, to the northeast, the Fraser Canyon’s dramatic landscape includes sheer granite walls rising up from a raging river. Experience gold rush history at Yale Historic Site, cross the canyon at Hell’s Gate, and raft the mighty Fraser River.

The Fraser River has been an important source of food, transportation, and a trading route for First Nations for centuries. The annual return of salmon, swimming up the massive river to their spawning grounds, is an awe-inspiring natural wonder. Today the river continues to play a central role in British Columbia’s geography and culture, and the fertile lands of the Fraser Valley inherently rely on the river’s health.
