History, scenery, culture and good old-fashioned hospitality. Do it all, see it all... in British Columbia
Shouldering the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Canadian Rockies to the east, British Columbia is perhaps Canada's most diverse province.
Enjoy 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. B.C. is also home to several fascinating cities; Vancouver and Victoria in particular offer excellent cultural and sightseeing opportunities.
Central and Northern B.C. are known for their excellent hunting and fishing opportunities and offer a glimpse into the aboriginal and rural cultures of Canada. The Sunshine Coast and Fraser Valley each boast spectacular scenery and small-community hospitality while still being in close proximity of the lower mainland metropolis. British Columbia will gain international focus when the 2010 Winter Olympics are hosted by Vancouver and Whistler.
