Connect with nature in BC
Mountains meet the ocean, bears forage amid temperate rainforest draped with moss, and waterfalls crash into glacier-cut canyons… exploring British Columbia reminds you that you’re part of nature. The province gives you a chance to form a deeper connection with the natural world, whether you’re spotting orcas and humpbacks breaching off Vancouver Island’s coast, hiking through the Great Bear Rainforest with a First Nations guide who’ll share the importance of the land and its inhabitants, or gliding to the top of a mountain on the Sea to Sky Gondola for views over deep-blue sounds and snow-scattered peaks.
Our specialists have explored British Columbia in depth, from its ten mountain ranges dotted with jewel-like lakes to its remote bear-watching lodges and the culturally rich streets of Vancouver. They can draw on their first-hand knowledge to suggest tried-and-tested experiences, matched to your interests, that will help you uncover the province’s raw beauty.
