Central BC Trip Planner
Welcome to Central BC!
The Central BC region is vast and diverse. The western side of the region is dominated by rich rain forests and the Cascade Mountain range. In the streams that spill from the mountainside, salmon spawn, head out to sea and ultimately return in spectacular runs numbering in the millions, creating an irresistible draw for fishers. Farther inland, the landscape rises dramatically. In these cool mountains, fishing cabins sit at the base of ominous glaciers and clear lakes. Deeper into the region the terrain changes drastically. Mountains melt away into the plains and grasslands of the Central BC plateau, with towns such as Williams Lake benefiting from the varied terrain, attracting visitors with the incredible options they can offer for outdoor enthusiasts. Ranching is strong here, and is reflected in the amount of guest ranches found near 100 Mile House. This central plateau was also the main route for prospectors heading north during the Gold Rush, and historical towns such as Barkerville remain to retell the story.
