British Columbia | Canada

Where the mountains meet the Pacific Ocean, the breathtaking landscape of British Columbia is a dramatic setting for a beautiful Canadian wedding. With it rugged mountain ranges, dramatic canyons, rivers teeming with salmon, abundant wildlife in lush forests, plus the Gulf Islands, British Columbia is also home to near-mystical rainforests, exotic shelled beaches and romantic secluded bays.

It's no wonder that this magnificent region has attracted travelers from around the world. "B.C." is just magical, and worth exploring as a top choice for a Canadian wedding destination.

Kootenay Rockies BC

The Kootenay Rockies is a vast wilderness of rivers, lakes, waterfalls, beaches, mineral hot springs, alpine meadows and snow-capped mountains.

Outdoor water pursuits include canoeing, boating, cycling, windsurfing, water-skiing and whitewater rafting. The area is also internationally renowned for its abundant fishing locales.

On land, the region is one of Canada's pre-eminent destinations for golfing and mountain biking, while the many dude and guest ranches offer authentic cattle rides. Camping opportunities abound. This is also your chance to visit wonderfully restored heritage towns, thriving arts communities and gold rush boomtowns.

During the winter, the Kootenay Rockies offers some of the continent's finest powder skiing and snowboarding, from head-rushing descents to great expanses of groomed cross-country trails.

Wildlife flourish here - be on the lookout for eagles, elk, mule deer, bighorn sheep, coyotes, moose, cougar as well as black and grizzly bears. 

Transportation options to the Kootenay Rockies include the Canadian Rockies International Airport. This is one of the few airports in British Columbia to offer direct air service from a major U.S. hub airport.

Vancouver Island BC

The Vancouver Island region is a large, sparsely populated area, encompassing Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands as well as a portion of the mainland.
It has one of the world's most diverse ecosystems: rainforests, marshes, meadows, beaches, mountains, oceans, rivers and lakes create habitats for multitudes of wildlife species. In fact, the region is one of the world's premier locations for golf, whale watching, birding, as well as salmon and trout fishing.

Much of the island has been protected as parkland. It contains many pockets of old-growth fir and cedar forests, as well as rare, naturally occurring groves of Garry oak. Vancouver Island is bisected, north to south, by the Beaufort Mountain Range, which is home to one of Canada's biggest all-natural ski bases.

The beauty and tranquility of this region has long been a draw for artists and artisans. Galleries, studios and shops selling unique, locally produced arts and crafts are found in many population centres, particularly on the Gulf Islands.

Mountains, oceans, lakes, rivers and beaches – this region boasts them in breathtaking abundance and beauty. The spectacular setting provides the venue for a vast array of outdoor adventures – Cycle, hike, camp, kayak, sail, golf, ski and snowboard. Don't miss the West Coast Special: ski in the morning, sail in the afternoon!

Always a favoured destination for sophisticated travellers, the climate in Vancouver is mild and temperate, but the region's mountains are equally renowned for their epic snowfalls. So much so, the region has been chosen by the International Olympic Committee for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

Venues for the Games will stretch from the cosmopolitan streets of Metro Vancouver to Whistler Village, a world-class ski resort. Awarding the Games is an honour that recognizes not just the physical capacity of the region to host them, but the international status of the city and its sophisticated amenities. Fine dining, sophisticated shopping, museums, galleries, parks and entertainment options abound - waiting to delight visitors of all ages and interests.

Haida Gwaii, BC

The Queen Charlotte Islands—historically known as Haida Gwaii, — is an archipelago of more than 150 islands. The region is a popular destination for travelers seeking beautiful coastal landscapes and a fascinating First Nations culture. The islands are some of the world’s richest heritage treasures, with more than 500 archeological sites.

Haida Gwaii's climate produces lush vegetation and abundant wildlife. Groups of Sitka deer feed on the grassy clearings along the Queen Charlotte Highway, and eagles—often hundreds at a time—can be seen flying overhead in spring and summer.

Island waters teem with sea life. Watch for grey, orca, and humpback whales along with seals, sea lions, porpoises, and marine birds. For the ultimate vantage point, take a kayaking daytrip in Skidegate Inlet or a multi-day paddle to Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site—North America's #1 national park according to National Georaphic Traveler Magazine.

Haida Gwaii's administrative center is located in Queen Charlotte City, a small community offering motels, B & B accommodation, restaurants, shops and galleries. Local operators offer tours and activites such as fishing, kayaking, floatplane trips, beachcombing, diving, and whale watching.

Thompson Okanagan BC

The history and culture of the Thompson Okanagan region is tied to the land. Aboriginal peoples led a semi-nomadic life moving between hunting and fishing grounds in the summers and settling into pit houses for the winter. Europeans came at first to trade for furs and then to establish cattle ranches, farms and mining operations. The region is full of museums and heritage sites that bring this colorful past to life for visitors.

Today, the Thompson Okanagan region is famous for its golf courses, orchards, ski resorts and vineyards as well as the wildly varied landscape. To the north of the central wine-and-fruit producing valley are vast boreal forests and to the south the desert of the Great Basin. The highest mountain in the Canadian Rockies is here, as is a waterfall twice the height of Niagara Falls and Canada's only true desert environment. Each year, outdoor enthusiasts flock to the Thompson Okanagan to hike, cross-country ski, snowshoe, fish, kayak, canoe, camp and view wildlife.

Cariboo Chilcotin Coast

The vast landscape of the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast stretches from the wildness of the Pacific Coast to the rolling Cariboo Mountains, with forests, hidden lakes, craggy peaks and golden plains set in between. This is a region with a past rich in the spirit of adventure, a land settled by entrepreneurs and outdoor enthusiasts, artists and explorers.

The Cariboo
Bordered by the Cariboo Mountains in the east and the Fraser River in the west, the Cariboo stretches north to the Blackwater River and south to the towns of Clinton and Lillooet. Drive the original Cariboo Waggon Road on the historic Gold Rush Trail. Lodge at a local guest ranch and visit a cowboy museum. The region is famous for its rodeos and stampedes. And no trip would be complete without paddling the legendary Bowron Lake Provincial Park Canoe Circuit.

The Chilcotin
Stretching west beyond the Fraser River, a burnished golden plateau meets the peaks of the Coast Mountain Range. In the Chilcotin, visitors can hike beyond the trails, fish in isolated lakes, reach high alpine with a packhorse trek and raft churning whitewater. You won't want to miss the volcanic mountains of Tweedsmuir Provincial Park, nor the ancient hoodoos and shifting sand dune of Farwell Canyon.

The Coast
The dramatic Coast region reaches from above Rivers Inlet to include the southern end of Princess Royal Island. A jumble of deep fjords and a scattering of emerald islands enchant and offer endless exploration opportunities by boat (ferry, kayak, canoe or yacht). Visit First Nations villages, rich in heritage, old growth forests, isolated hot springs and massive mountains.
