British Columbia - Globe Guide

British Columbia

British Columbia is a mesmerizing medley of coastal rainforests, snow-capped mountains, thundering waterfalls and picturesque Pacific shorelines.

British Columbia on Canada's west coast truly has it all, with vibrant cities like Vancouver, outdoor adventures in places like Whistler and the Kootenay Rockies, the arid Okanangan Valley vineyards and the laid-back pace of charming Victoria and surfer's paradise Tofino on Vancouver Island.

Dramatic mountain ranges including the Monashees, Purcells, Cariboos and Selkirks bring adrenaline-fuelled activities like heli-skiing and heli-hiking, along with slopeside stays at ski resorts.

From rafting to hiking to sky-high thrills, there are always fun things to do year-round in the Kootenay Rockies region, which includes Revelstoke, Golden, the Columbia Valley, Rossland, Invermere, Cranbrook and Fernie.

The Okanagan is BC's summer playground, famous for its fantastic wineries, golf courses and lakefront scene in cities like Kelowna and Vernon--there's even an annual wine run in Oliver and Osoyoos.
