Motor Coach Canada: Tour & Travel Canada 2017 - 93


British Columbia
Set between the Pacific Ocean in the west
and the magnificent Rocky Mountains in the
east, British Columbia is Canada's westernmost province. Blessed with breathtaking
landscapes, BC is home to a geographical
diversity that lends itself to a vast array of
activities and adventures. There are mountains to climb, rivers to run, beaches to comb,
forests to hike, parks to stroll and warm summer lakes to laze about on.
While natural resources such as fish, minerals, hydroelectricity and timber have always
been the backbone of BC's economy, newer
industries such as eco-tourism, agri-tourism,
film and high tech have become important
economic drivers over the last decade. The
province generally enjoys a temperate climate but where there are mountains, there
is snow.
BC offers not just outdoor adventure but
cosmopolitan culture, world class exhibitions, uptown shopping and fabulous dining.
From sophisticated cities to breathtaking
scenery, there is something for everyone in
BC. Book the perfect BC holiday and experience BC's breathtaking scenery and exciting
cities and resorts. Enjoy five-star hotels and
resorts, backcountry cabins, ranches, campsites, inns or B&Bs and all accommodations
in between.

British Columbia is divided into the following six touring regions:
* Vancouver Island, Victoria and the Gulf
Islands: The islands are a haven for those
interested in marine life. Visitors can charter a boat, rent kayaks, go surfing or just
relax on the beaches. On Vancouver Island,
those visiting the city of Victoria can enjoy
the area's rich history, filled with turn-ofthe-century architecture and cobblestone
streets. The golf pro will also enjoy more
than 40 courses, including more than a
dozen championship courses.
* Vancouver, Coast & Mountains: Vancouver
features fabulous shopping, art displays,
festivals and activities. It is also close to
nature, as well as to fishing villages and
artistic communities. Just half an hour
from the city is the Sea to Sky Highway
99-known as one of the world's most scenic drives. Two hours north of Vancouver is
the four season alpine resort of Whistler
Blackcomb, voted North America's numberone ski resort.
* Thompson Okanagan: This area flourishes with vineyards, fruit trees and berry
