Heading down Highway 1, you could pause in Salmon Arm, the ‘Gem of the Shuswap’ and an unspoilt area for outdoor pursuits. Stretch the legs amid some gorgeous lake scenery. Follow the short hiking trail to Margaret Falls in Herald Provincial Park to see the ancient cedars and trace the shoreline of the Adams River in Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park.
Wells Gray Provincial Park is a true wilderness, certainly one of Canada’s most beautiful parks. Immerse yourself in natural surroundings, with pounding waterfalls, guided walks, hiking trails, white water rafting and kayaking.
The wildlife is exceptional: black bears, grizzlies, moose, mountain goats, caribou, wolves and cougars. Don’t miss Dawson and Spahats Falls and especially Helmcken Falls, which plunge 140 metres down into a mist-filled abyss and which, in winter, freeze into a pinnacle of ice.
