Things to do

There are always exciting things to do in British Columbia. In fact, the challenge in British Columbia is not figuring out what to do, but how to do it all.

There are myriads of municipal, provincial and national parks in which to walk, hike and bike. Thanks to a temperate climate, golf enthusiasts can indulge in their passion nearly year round. In the mountains, powder snow draws skiers from around the world.

Fruit picking is a popular activity for all ages. There is no better fruit than the one you pick yourself from the tree. There are orchards throughout the valley. Stop at any “U PICK” signs.

At night you can relax and let your worries fade away as you sit by the beach around a crackling fire, or lay down on the grass and admire the glittering sky.
