This BC Circle Route detailed itinerary offers the ultimate escape to mountain grandeur, the Okanagan, and outdoor adventure. Wander the wetlands, soak in hot springs, play a round of golf, and visit some of the country’s finest wineries.

The navigational highway signs on route make this road trip easy to follow. You’ll travel approximately 1,260 km (780 mi), so give yourself seven to 10 days to explore.
