Cariboo Chilcotin Coast

Explore a land without limits 

Adventure permeates the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast, a landscape of forests, fjords, peaks, and plains ranging across British Columbia from the Pacific Coast to the Cariboo Mountains.

See grizzlies at Tweedsmuir Provincial Park, fish one of the region’s many lakes, and follow the historic Gold Rush Trail to a recreation of the 1860s boomtown, Barkerville. If that doesn’t satisfy your appetite for exploring, ride horseback from Clinton into the backcountry, go small-town gallery hopping in Quesnel, or paddle the popular Bowron Lake Canoe Circuit.

Great Bear Rainforest

Diverse wildlife in untamed wilderness

Encompassing a quarter of the world’s coastal temperate rainforest, the Great Bear Rainforest stretches along the central and northern coasts of British Columbia.

The Great Bear Rainforest is the largest coastal temperate rainforest in the world, boasting more than six million hectares (16 million acres). The area’s incredible biodiversity is protected to maintain its ecological integrity, including 1,000-year-old spruce and cedar trees.

The rainforest is home to the Kermode, or “Spirit” bear, a black bear with all-white fur. The creature’s dramatic colour is caused by a recessive gene, and it’s estimated to occur in one in 10 bears of the area. Stories of the bear are woven into the legends of the local Indigenous Peoples who have lived in this area for millennia.

Cariboo & Gold Rush Trail

History and adventure meet in wild-open spaces

Following the path of the Fraser River up to the Cariboo Plateau and Mountains, this diverse countryside was once Gold country. 

The Gold Rush Trail follows the path of prospectors who came in search of adventure and wealth; today, the Barkerville Historic Town recounts the past in a recreated 1860s boomtown. Throughout the area, spirit of adventure remains, and outdoor adventure activities abound.

Ride into BC’s wild west frontier

With few roads and a frontier spirit, the Chilcotin is home to golden plateaus along the forested Coast Mountain Range, grasslands and glaciers, alpine rivers and lakes. 

But its Wild West heart is in the valley ranchland and hay fields. If you’re looking for a horseback pack trip or wildlife-viewing ride, this is your place. Hiking the backcountry of west-central British Columbia is just as popular, as is fishing the isolated lakes, heli-skiing, whitewater rafting, and grizzly bear viewing at Tweedsmuir Provincial Park.
