If you are looking for something to do in British Columbia (B.C.) during the summer, you will have plenty of options. Canada’s west coast is loaded with activities to enjoy and sights to see while the weather is warm. Here’s a list of five activities you shouldn’t miss!
Guided Wildlife Tours
Among other things, B.C. is known for its rich variety of wildlife. That being said, It is never advisable to trek into the woods to try and catch a glimpse of wild animals in their element. Luckily, there are many reputable companies in the province operating safe, guided tours that respect natural habitats while giving you an intimate look at these amazing creatures.
No matter the kind of biking you’re into, B.C. has you covered. If you’re looking for a scenic stroll, Vancouver’s Stanley Park Seawall is a great way to experience nature on the edge of the city. Farther afield, you’ll find plenty of mountain biking on Vancouver Island, where you can pair your biking adventures with delicious craft brews, such as on The BC Ale Trail.
Urban Night Markets
In the summertime, the night markets come to life and add a vibrant element to the city. Every summer, The Richmond Night Market is North America’s largest, where you’ll find lots of delicious street food at reasonable prices.
With its scenic beauty, B.C. is a camper’s paradise. Head off the beaten path to Saltery Bay Provincial Park on B.C.’s stunning Sunshine Coast. You’ll find campsites and an opportunity to hang out on the beach where you can view orcas, sea lions, otters and sea birds just off the shore.
If you’re into diving, this is the place for you—there is a bronze mermaid statue submerged in Saltery Bay!
Great Bear Rainforest
A summer in B.C. wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Great Bear Rainforest. This remote, rugged area covers 6.4 million hectares, and is the largest intact temperate rainforest in the world. It has long been home to many of B.C.’s Indigenous population, as well as to the rare white Spirit Bear.
