Travel to British Columbia

Travel to British Columbia and enjoy what is perhaps Canada's most diverse province. Trips to British Columbia can include skiing the legendary Rocky Mountains, hiking the majestic wilderness of the Kootenays, touring the world-class vineyards of the Okanagan and sailing among the temperate water surrounding Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. British Columbia is also home to several fascinating cities (Vancouver and Victoria in particular) that offer excellent cultural and sightseeing opportunities. Central and Northern B.C. offer a glimpse into the aboriginal and rural cultures of Canada while the Sunshine Coast and Fraser Valley boast spectacular scenery from the shadow of the lower mainland metropolis.

Set between the Pacific Ocean in the west and the magnificent Rocky Mountains in the east, British Columbia is Canada's westernmost province. Travel to British Columbia for its breathtaking landscapes. The province is home to a geographical diversity that lends itself to a vast array of activities and adventures. There are mountains to climb, rivers to run, beaches to comb, forests to hike, parks to stroll and warm summer lakes to enjoy.

The beautiful coast of British Columbia is well known for its temperate climate, which varies from marine to continental. BC's climate is influenced by its location immediately east of the warm Pacific Ocean, the north-south orientation of its towering mountain chains, the mountainous topography, the prevailing westerly winds and the province's northerly latitude. Summers tend to be dry throughout most of BC. In the winter months, the province is affected occasionally by much colder, drier air from the Arctic. Despite this, areas such as Vancouver Island experience the mildest climate in Canada, with warm summers and cool winters that allow for activities such as fishing, sailing and even golfing in January.
