Want Adventure at your door?
There is a myriad of activities to choose from in summer from hiking to biking to flightseeing, sailing, fishing, kayaking, paddleboarding or trailriding. Or if you are a winter sport enthusiast, choose our gorgeous blue sky winter days and perfect powder snow.
You can't possibly be here long enough to do everything there is to do, but you can sure try! Go from extreme sports to family orientated activities or easy days on a dock. Just choose!
The western region of the Chilcotin is known for its fabulous dry powder, perfect for snowmobiling! Or check out miles of groomed cross country ski trails at Tatla Lake or in the Rainbow Mountains.
Like Alaska, summer or winter, we have one of the largest populations of big game and fur bearing animals to photograph in North America, not to mention our really big birds!
Because the West Chilcotin comprises such a huge area, we have broken it down into ten regions for visitors to make it easier to find more detailed information for each area. We also have information on all regions along Highway 20 from Riske Creek to Bella Coola to assist in your travel planning.
The Chilcotin is blessed with several designated Protected Areas and a number of Provincial Parks, one of which is Tweedsmuir Park, the largest park in BC, and still almost entirely wilderness. Except where Highway 20 runs through it, it is only accessible by horse, plane, hiking or by snowmobile in winter.
Check out the accommodations available throughout the region. Use our interactive Map, and make sure to download our Highway 20 Guide for where to go and what to do!
