British Columbia – nature’s best
Skiing in fancy resorts, surfing in the Pacific, swimming in mountain lakes, hiking to a glacier?
It is possible. It is British Columbia.
Sounds unbelievable? Well, you should check out the coast and mountain region in Vancouver. It is heaven for outdoor adventurers – you can ski in the morning, sail in the afternoon and enjoy the sophisticated amenities later in the evening.
Also, on the far west coast you can find one of the best world’s islands – Vancouver Island, a mix of wilderness and culture. Here you can admire orcas, swim with salmons and later recharge in cosy cosmopolitan centres.
Another piece of paradise is the Thompson Okanagan region – it has a waterfall twice as high as Niagara, a parrot island sanctuary and romantic vineyards.
Travelling further on to Northern BC, you’ll find nature being well preserved and protected by provincial parks and nature reserves.
The Cariboo Chilcotin Coast is the best place to visit real working ranches, fish in freshwater lakes and see some heritage villages.
The majority of BC’s natural parks are to be found in The Kootenay Rockies, one of Canada’s destinations of choice for adventure seekers. Here lived the Ktunaxa tribe, long before the first Europeans arrived – hence the region’s name.
Among all this wild life, urban scenery emerges with world-class cities like Vancouver and Victoria, both famous cosmopolitan centres with a lively entertainment scene and a great palette of educational options. The University of British Columbia is rated among the best in Canada with its world-class research opportunities. After it, there’s the University of Victoria that offers innovative programs for more than 20,000 students - Capilano University in North Vancouver and Simon Fraser University in Burnaby are also part of the Canadian elite.
BC is truly a place where nature reigns.
