People in British Columbia are famously relaxed and welcoming – in a bountiful country that takes having fun so seriously, it’s no surprise!

Four times the size of the United Kingdom and covered in immense mountains, rugged coastline and towering green forests, there are endless opportunities to take on a challenge or find a peaceful place for contemplation.

Year-round British Columbia offers superlative escapism. Be it white-water rafting, hiking through glacier parks, carving up the snow on Whistler, taking a train ride through the Rocky Mountains, going bear-watching, taking a food and wine tour through vineyards, or strolling through Vancouver’s lively food markets.

British Columbia is also one of the world’s great sailing regions, with thousands of lakes and uninhabited islands to explore.
