Canada is the second largest country in the world by area, spanning almost two-fifths of the continent of North America. Its landscape is endlessly varied, ranging from the Canadian Rockies, to wide open prairies and immense pine forests, world-famous lakes and even Arctic tundra in the north.
British Columbia is Canada's westernmost province, surrounded by mountains in the west and ancient temperate rainforests along its coast. In between lie numerous unique landscapes, spanning from lakes, to desert, to beautiful rolling grasslands and lush valleys. The indigenous peoples of the region have inhabited the landscape for an estimated 10,000 years, and their living traditions can still be enjoyed today through art, food, guided tours, and unique cultural experiences to really immerse yourself in the local culture.
