British Columbia is known for its spectacular national and provincial parks and abundant wildlife.

Incredible BC Scenery

Across the province, gaze up at majestic mountains (many of them rising more than 3,000m/9,843ft), and explore ancient old-growth forests.Visit the Great Bear Rainforest. Discover caves and hoodoos (ancient, stone-like pillars), and amble along long sandy beaches. Hike through alpine meadows carpeted with wildflowers and trek to some of Canada's highest waterfalls. To relax, slip into the mineral waters of a natural hot spring.

Wildlife in BC

Look for wildlife while enjoying the scenery: go bird watching; join a whale watching tour; or spot grizzly bears pawing for salmon on a bear watching tour. Bald eagles often soar above, while mountain goats, moose and caribou roam BC's parks.
