From Haida Gwaii, where the wilderness rules and a strong First Nations culture maintains an unbreakable bond with nature, to the peaks of the Rocky Mountains, world-famous for their majestic stature, BC is a land of extreme beauty. In the western part of the province, the Coast Mountains rise right out of the ocean, creating a contrast unlike any other, while moving inland brings you to the sweeping Chilcotin steppe, giving way to the vast and powerful backcountry of the north. To the south, the Okanagan is known for its mild weather and desert-like landscape, while further east the Kootenays are home to one of the country’s most vibrant adventure cultures. No matter which corner of the province you are exploring, BC is as exciting a destination as you can find anywhere in the world.
