Trip Ideas

BC Mountain Adventures

With 10 mountain ranges across the province there is ample opportunity to ascend a peak and play above the clouds. Ride a chairlift, helicopter or plane, or challenge yourself and hike to the top. Once you are in the alpine, you can hike, bike or fish, and spend the night in your tent or a deluxe lodge. For something completely different try via ferrata, mountain climbing with the aid of secured bridges, cables and iron ladder rungs. Whatever adventure you choose you'll be rewarded with astounding views and memories that last a lifetime.
