Exploring Quesnel & Area in the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast: Nature’s Playground

If there were any natural part of the world that could legitimately earn the catchy moniker of “Outdoor Adventureland,” it might be BC’s own Cariboo Chilcotin Coast region. It’s also what some might call “Big Sky Country,” reminiscent of cowboys, ranchers and homesteaders – the kind of big open spaces where the land meets the sea and opens into a world of possibilities.

Bar Rig Fishing Coho Salmon in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia

Hiking Near Whistler, British Columbia

The Whistler area is known to offer ample outdoor fun during both summer and winter months. I love going to Whistler because it’s less than a two-hour drive from Vancouver, yet it feels like a getaway, and is close enough for a quick weekend mini vacay. Whether you’re staying at a hotel or camping in the woods, the nature and stunning views in the surrounding area are simply breathtaking. Situated in the alpine forests, overlooking the coast mountains of the Squamish area it is the perfect home base for the outdoorsy souls. Read more…

A Weekend Adventure in the Fraser Canyon, British Columbia

Last summer we spent a glorious extended weekend exploring the Fraser Canyon from Hope to Lytton where the rock formations along the mighty Fraser River push against the rushing waters that tumble through the narrow canyons. Cliffs rise from the edge of the canyon and one can glimpse trains making their way on what seems to be a perilous journey on rail lines seemingly hanging on to the cliff and diving into periodic tunnels through the rock.

Best Places to See Salmon Spawning near Vancouver, British Columbia

Fall on British Columbia’s south coast means many things … cooler days, changing leaves, visits to pumpkin fields and corn mazes, but my favourite fall activity is watching the phenomenon that is Pacific Salmon spawning.

British Columbia is home to five species of salmon, Spring (or Chinook), Coho, Sockeye, Pink and Chum, and arguably, there is nothing more epic than the voyage these fish take to return to their spawning grounds. Many travel over thousands of kilometres, guided primarily by smell as they return to their birthplaces. Read more…

BC’s Biggest Attractions Are Often in the Smallest Places

Most visitors to BC assume that the biggest attractions are located in and around our largest city, Vancouver, or perhaps our provincial capital, Victoria. In one sense, they would be right, but in the literal sense, they are totally wrong. It’s not Vancouver that has the world’s largest fly rod (all 60 feet and 800 lbs of it) – the town of Houston does. Read more…
