British Columbia’s wide landscapes welcome a sense of adventure and exploration.
The province’s wilderness offers unparalleled experiences that leave indelible memories. Explorers can helicopter over a waterfall at Tumbler Ridge’s UNESCO Global Geopark, launch their rafts down a wild river in the Kootenay Rockies, or ride down single-track trail on Vancouver Island. For a ranch experience, the mountain plateaus of the Cariboo Chilcotin beckon, while golfers can follow their passion to over 300 courses in BC.
Ten mountain ranges provide unparalleled opportunities for hiking and mountaineering, while skiing takes precedence in the winter months. A diverse ecosystem allows for remarkable wildlife viewing excursions, while thrill-seekers can find plenty of options for an adrenalin rush.
Both freshwater and saltwater anglers find solitude on lakes, rivers, and the ocean. Scuba divers discover a new world through shore-accessed dives and a circuit of shipwreck sites, and surfers can catch a wave in Tofino. From Vancouver’s False Creek to the remote Bowron Lakes, paddling is a popular activity across the province.
