Today you’ll get a real feel for British Columbia’s historic gold rush, following stretches of the original Cariboo Wagon Road that was trodden by thousands of pioneers in the 1860s. From there you’ll continue through the high jagged peaks and glaciers of the Cariboo Mountains to Clearwater and on to Wells Gray 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.
