Boasting so many unique landscapes and incredible scenery, British Columbia is a veritable paradise for hiking enthusiasts and there are so many places to visit!

Away from the three aforementioned spots, there are dozens, probably more like hundreds, of others.

Starting nearby Vancouver, the largest city in the province, Garibaldi Provincial Park offers plenty of pristine alpine scenery with several amazing mountains to climb as well. The park boasts various trails, which offer incredible views of the surroundings. Garibaldi Lake Trail, Panorama Ridge Trail and the Black Tusk Trail are among the favourites.

Continuing northward, Ts’yl-os Provincial Park offers even more incredible hiking opportunities. The views from some of the mountain slopes out over the lake and valley are sublime. Truly a do not miss for anyone who loves getting out into the backcountry.
