The third largest and most westerly province in Canada, British Columbia offers an extraordinary mix of culture, people and nature. First explorers came British Columbia in the late 18th century, however, British Columbia wasn’t established until July 20, 1871. The Canadian government promised to build the trans Canada Railroad which would link British Columbia to the neighboring provinces.

 

Outside of being called the "Hollywood of the North", BC has over 27 000 km of coastlines, is home to Canada's oldest living trees and the elusive "Spirit Bear" as well as some of the largest salmon migrations in the world. It is no wonder British Columbia is the only Canadian province to boast the “West Coast Special;"  ski in the morning and golf or sail in the evening.
