British Columbia Information
One would think that with all there is to do in British Columbia it would occupy more than the 10% of Canada's land surface that it does. BC, home to almost 4.5 million people, has a lot to offer. Must-sees include: Vancouver, Victoria, Whistler, Tofino, Penticton, Kelowna, Osoyoos, Parksville, Fort Nelson, Prince Rupert, Sandspit, Prince George, 100 Mile House, Port Hardy, and Kamloops.
It's commonly said that the challenge in BC is not figuring out what to do, but how to do it all! With tons of provincial and national parks, it's hard to know where to start. Glacier National Park in Golden, BC has more than 400 glaciers and icefields and some of Canada's most active avalanche areas. The park is Canada's second oldest national park and is home to grizzly bears, mountain goats and hoary marmots.
Relax in soothing, mineral-rich waters while you marvel at the dramatic rock walls of Sinclair Canyon. Enjoy the large hot pool or cooler swimming pool that's a wonderful activity for families. A day spa featuring wellness therapies compliments a visit any time of the year.
Just minutes away from Stanley Park & downtown Vancouver, visitors will discover the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre, Planetarium, and Observatory, next to the Vancouver Maritime Museum, Vanier Park & Kitsilano Beach. The center provides knowledge and resources on the wonders of space. It offers a unique experience for the entire family - there's fun for everyone. Take a thrilling ride on the Virtual Stimulator, catch live demonstration shows at GroundStation Canada, check the space exhibits, or sit back and enjoy a show at the planetarium.
