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.

The Fraser River flows through the valley, and 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.
