Kootenay Rockies, British Columbia.

The regions of British Columbia and Alberta provides a wonderful diversity of things to see and do. These are some of the world’s greatest whale-watching waters, rich in marine life of all kinds, as well as the most beautiful and untouched wilderness regions including the beautiful Rocky Mountains.

British Columbia

British Columbia or "BC" as it is commonly known, is four times the size of Great Britain and its northern half, bordered by Alaska and the Yukon, is a largely pristine wilderness of glaciers, fjords, lakes and waterfalls.

A good place to begin is BC’s largest city, Vancouver, a young and vibrant metropolis that is consistently voted one of the world’s most attractive cities to live. On Vancouver Island the provincial capital, Victoria, is a colonial gem, with an old-world charm and a mild Pacific climate.

The province’s spectacular scenery includes the famed coastal Inside Passage, the old-growth rainforests and big surf beaches of Vancouver Island, the vast cowboy country of the Cariboo, the orchards and vineyards of the Okanagan Valley and the Kootenay Rockies with their bears, elk and eagles.

The First Nations of the Pacific seaboard are renowned for their totem poles and longhouses and after many years of oppression the native cultures and arts are now resurgent.

Alberta and The Rockies

Alberta is home to some of Canada’s most iconic images, including Banff and Jasper National Parks, Lake Louise and the Columbia Icefields. It is also home to dynamic young cities such as Edmonton and Calgary, glittering with tower blocks financed by the oil industry.

Northern Alberta is an untamed wilderness of boreal forest whose highlight is Wood Buffalo National Park, one of the few places where herds of plains bison still roam, while southern Alberta is home to the Cowboy Trail with rustic homestay ranches and the enchanting Waterton Lakes National Park.

The Canadian Rockies offer the ultimate range of outdoor activities with horse riding, white-water rafting, canoeing and guided walking just some of the exhilarating options.
