BC Travel Regions
British Columbia is Canada's most westerly province and some say, the country's most captivating. Bounded on its western shores by the Pacific Ocean and on the east by the Rocky Mountains, it has everything a recreational traveler could want.
Alpine, Nordic and heli-skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, dog sledding and snowboarding dominate the winter season, while hiking, swimming, mountain climbing, biking and horseback riding fill the warmer months.
Those who aren't sport-oriented will find plenty of opportunities for recreation, too. B.C.'s Gulf Islands are famous for their sunset panoramas as well as for their sweet wines, country ambiance and small-town settings. B.C.'s cities, such as Vancouver, Victoria and Nanaimo, and its villages, which can be found in every corner of the province, offer an adventure of their own, as well.
Hundreds, if not thousands of years of history are reflected in the many museums, historical landmarks and culture-rich communities that dot this landscape and make it one of North America's most favoured destination points.
