British Columbia is the „Ocean & Mountain Province“ of Canada. From the Pacific to the Rockies.
Northern British Columbia isn´t densly populated. The rugged Coast ;Mountains dominate the landscape. The area – described here as Northern B. C. – reaches from Williams Lake in the South to the Yukon Territories in the North.
British Columbias southwest has a lot to offer, especially for all those, who are interested in rough, wild and breathtakingly beautiful nature. The described area reaches from the Pacific Coast and the Coast Mountains in the West to the Kooteneys in the East.
The Selkirks and the Kooteneys, located west of the Rocky Mountains are one of the many and most stunning regions of British Columbia. It´s impossible to present all the beautiful spots and hiking destinations here on my site. Enjoy the few examples I hiked and selected for you.
Vancouver Island spells : beaches, fjords, high mountains, glaciers, waterfalls, lakes, cozy villages and cities like Victoria (Capitol of B.C.). The island can be reached only by boat, ship or plane. The ferry ride from the Mainland across the Strait of Georgia to the ports of Nanaimo or Swartz Bay near Victoria are one of the highlights when visiting the island.
Mountains are mainly characterizing the landscape of British Columbia. The ancestors had been very wise by setting aside important and very beautiful parts of the Province as National Parks. Some of those are Glacier N.P., Revelstoke N.P., Yoho N.P. and Kootenay N.P.
