British Columbia - South

Provided By: 

British Columbia is known as Canada’s outdoor playground. The southernmost part of the province tends to be a bit more temperate year round, making it ideal for golfing, or putting on those hiking boots and taking to the many trails that wind through BC’s incredible wilderness areas. In winter, there’s no better place to enjoy the snow than British Columbia. In fact, Vancouver is the site for the 2010 Winter Games, and it’s easy to see why!

For our purposes, we start some distance from the well-traveled areas of Vancouver and the province’s capital of Victoria. Our origin point is the town of Revelstoke, which is situated quite close to Mount Revelstoke National Park. There’s an abundance of fishing to be had in any of the several freshwater lakes in the area, and the hypnotic natural beauty of Revelstoke can be enjoyed via a network of hiking and mountain biking trails. After a day out in the woods, you may want to take a rejuvenating soak in the local mineral hot springs. Locals swear by their restorative powers. While in Revelstoke, a place of interest to history buffs is the Revelstoke Railway Museum, which features exhibits about Canada’s first transcontinental railway. The nearby Revelstoke Dam offers tours of their massive facilities, which are considered among the largest hydroelectric plants in North America.

Leaving Revelstoke via Alaska Highway/Highway 1, head west for 44 miles until you come to the town of Sicamous, which is considered the houseboat capital of Canada. It sits at the junction of the Shuswap and Mara lakes; recent statistics claim that more than three hundred houseboats are rented for use in this area annually. So, while you’re in the area, maybe it would be a good idea to make it three hundred and one!

For more land-locked activities, the Eagle Valley Museum & Heritage Society allows visitors to take a peek at how things were back in the gold rush and logging days. The Enchanted Forest is a magical setting, containing more than 250 hand-crafted fairy folk and gnomes; there’s even an 800-year old cedar tree.

Presuming you don’t get lost forever in the Enchanted Forest, when it’s time to leave Sicamous head south on Highway 97B. A beautifully scenic 47-mile cruise brings you into the city limits of Vernon. Vernon sits at the north end of the lush Okanagan Valley and is surrounded by three lakes – the Okanagan, the Kalamalka, and the Swan. With all this water, you can certainly find plenty to do in the summertime – kayaking, boating and fishing are among the many options that Vernon offers. Don’t miss the chance to tour through the Okanagan Valley’s wine country. According to various wine connoisseurs, the vintages that come from these local vineyards are some of the best to be found in all of Canada. The area is also home to some fine beachfront territory as well, so for those of you who fancy a bit of fun on the sand, you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for.

Leaving the 97B, a little more than thirty miles on...
