British Columbia is known for its nature. From mountaintops to treetops, and lakes to rivers, this province sure has a lot to offer. But you don’t have to be an avid outdoors person to enjoy all the cities and communities that make up Canada’s westernmost province. In fact, what the province boasts in natural wonders almost pales in comparison to the vibrancy of its cities. Here are some of our favorite photos that showcase the abundance of urban and natural beauty that can be explored on your next adventure to BC.
Floating through the day, soaking up the sun
Glacier views and the opportunity to float the day away, Joffre Lakes Provincial Park is the perfect place to take in the unbelievably blue waters after a 2.5-hour hike.
Local beaches are spiked with action
The greatest scenery
Go for the legendary Spirit Bear, stay for the nature. The Great Bear Rainforest is a truly special place where, though somewhat remote, you’ll feel more connected than ever.
The leap is worth the payoff
No risk, no reward, no view
See it from the seaside
Where the Rockies rock
The coast with the most
Conquer your fear of heights
Vibrant vineyards light up
You don’t have to head too far north to experience the aurora borealis. BC’s Okanangan is famous for its wine and is just as well known for its scenery — from stunning sunsets to the occasional display of the Northern Lights.
Up above the urban
Where you wish the day would never end
The Gulf Islands are home to all sorts of eclectic communities to explore — that is if you’re not too tired from staying up to see the sunset and waking up to see the sunrise.
