Great Canadian Parks
British Columbia
'splendour without diminishment'.

Lakes, rivers, Vancouver Island, vast mountain ranges, ancient glaciers and thousands of islands along the wilderness coast, make up Canada's most westerly province where tourists can hike mountain trails, explore aboriginal antiquities and traverse ice fields. Whale watching is a popular coastal tourism activity, while the interior offers stunning mountain scenery and the chance to glimpse grizzly bears and many other species in their protected habitats.
