The west coast of British Columbia is made up of majestic mountains plunging into deep blue waters. Add in tall forests, great rivers, rare birds, whales, salmon, bears, boats and small villages, and you've got a place of truly breathtaking beauty.
With these attractions—as well as the inland mountains, forests, lakes and orchards—British Columbia will prove most irresistible to those travelers who love the outdoors. But you don't have to be a wilderness kamikaze to appreciate the wonders: The province has lots of boat trips, guided tours and well-maintained roads that allow you to see the sights in a good deal of comfort.
Visitors who have no desire to look at even a single eagle, barking sea lion or glacier will find the cities of Victoria and, especially, Vancouver to be urban jewels almost as outstanding as the province's natural resources. These cities are still within gazing distance of the mountains and the sea, however. Escaping the scenery in British Columbia is no easy task.
