Motor Coach Canada: Tour & Travel Canada 2017 - 89

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

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-of-the-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 number-one ski resort.
* Thompson Okanagan: This area flourishes
with vineyards, fruit trees and berry bushes.
Visitors can enjoy an up-close look at the fascinating process of wine making at one of the
area's fine wineries. Thompson Okanagan is
also home to some of Canada's finest golf
courses, with more than 50 in total.

* Kootenay Rockies: This region is known
for its natural mineral hot springs and parks.
There are more than 75 provincial and
national parks in the area-each a protected
wilderness area. Perhaps the most impressive is Yoho National Park with 28 mountain
peaks over 3,000 metres in height.
* Cariboo Chilcotin Coast: This area features guest ranches for the aspiring cowpoke, each ranging in character from rustic
charm to a deluxe spa experience. Visitors
can relive the Gold Rush days of the late
1800s by panning for gold in Barkerville, or
experience the thrill of riding the whitewaters of the Chilko, Chilcotin or Fraser rivers.
The Cariboo Chilcotin Coast boasts thousands of lakes and thousands of kilometers
of rivers, streams and coastline.
* Northern BC: This is the perfect destination for the nature enthusiast, including Haida Gwaii and the Rocky Mountain
Foothills. In the Northern Rockies, the
Muskwa-Kechika Management Area is
known as the "Serengeti of the North"
because of its wildlife diversity and ecosystems. For the history and art lover, cedar
totems carved centuries ago are visible in
Aboriginal villages.
