Experience

The number of activities and experiences you can enjoy really is without limits.  However our region is diverse enough to give you a number of places or themes to get you started, but be careful – like eating a bowl of chips, you can’t limit yourself to just one.  Experiences abound in this region!

Motorcycle Touring

Ranking high on the list of attractions for motorcyclists is the huge diversity of landscapes. The topography ranges from forested lake country to golden, rolling grasslands to red-rock canyons and twisted hoodoos. The vistas are awesome, with plunging cliffs, immense cloud banks and long descents into riverlined valleys. As an added bonus, many roads have pullouts where you can breathe it in.

Ranches & Rodeos

B.C.’s “Land without Limits” is the province’s go-to destination for rodeos, rustic guest ranches and resort-style luxury. It’s also cattle country, real cattle country, where riding enthusiasts can immerse themselves in the local cowboy culture in unique ways – guided by experienced cowhands who are more than happy to share their appreciation of this iconic way of life.

Fishing & Hunting

Fishing and hunting are more than casual experiences here. It’s a way of life, part of our culture and that many enjoy sharing with others. Imagine fishing a new interior lake or a new spot along the central coast every day for the rest of your life; or, trekking into the wilderness with the aid of experienced guides to harvest mule deer, moose, California bighorn sheep and more.

Arts & Culture

It is a land of striking contrasts . . . a land that drew me like a magnet into its soul.” Author Richmond P. Hobson wrote those words in the first installment of his classic trilogy, 1978’s Grass Beyond the Mountains: Discovering the Last Great Frontier on the North American Continent – words that mirror how the landscape of this vast region is so often reflected in the region’s culture.

Cuisine

Local restaurants and eateries are similarly diverse, from popular food chains along Gold Rush Trail routes to sophisticated dining options scattered throughout the region, where tempting meals are lovingly made with, of course, fresh, indigenous ingredients.

Winter Experiences

One of Canada’s finest attributes is the fact that it has four distinct seasons, a reality particularly important here in this region, where we aim to please visitors no matter when they visit. Still, in winter the air is spectacularly fresh, the sunsets magical, and no other region in B.C. offers the same rolling hills, backcountry lakes, forests, resorts and ranches and other escapes.
