The West Coast is the name given to the area of Canada west of the majestic mountain of the Rockies, namely British Columbia. This province is known as Beautiful British Columbia and it is a well named moniker. BC is a land of spectacular beauty that encapsulates the Sheer peaks of the Rockies that line the entire eastern border, the lakes of the interior, the stunning glass city of Vancouver with the back drop of the coastal mountain range and ocean, the abundant wildlife and the fascinating historic City of Victoria. In addition to the astounding beauty of the province visitors can immerse themselves in first nation cultures, engage in adventurous activities and more!


British Columbia
British Columbia is the kingdom of abundance. Where glaciated mountains stand over an unruly Pacific. Rainforests wrap cities. Nature shapes culture. The wild breathing life back into the wild within. This abundant, nurturing landscape has sustained ancient societies for 10,000 years. And today, some of those settlements have grown into cities that cling to the edge of wilderness, and won’t let go. People visit and live in BC to be within arm’s reach of nature’s richness. To ski world-renowned resorts, surf Pacific swells, swim in clear mountain lakes, hike to a glacier and back in a day. And all that activity breathes energy into British Columbia's culture of hospitality.
Wherever you go in British Columbia, you’ll find natural scenery so spectacular it has to be experienced to be believed. Explore awe-inspiring mountain ranges, rolling vineyards, cosmopolitan cities, and observe wildlife in its natural habitat. With so much to see, you’ll want to stay a while.

Travel Tips:
British Columbia is a highly hospitable environment for visitors. Its road systems are modern and well marked, it has accommodations to suit every taste and budget, and its businesses are accustomed to serving clients from all over the world.


Weather/ Climate:
Climate in British Columbia is influenced by latitude, mountainous topography and the Pacific Ocean. This diversity causes wide variations in average rainfall, snowfall, temperature and hours of sunshine, sometimes over very short distances. In general, however, temperatures are warmer in the south than in the north, and rainfall is heaviest along the coast and lightest in the southern interior. BC is a large province, and therefore has a number of different climatic zones.


Winter: Winters on the coast are temperate, and if snow falls it doesn’t stay long. A warm coat and umbrella are sufficient weather protection in these mild coastal climes. Most of BC’s interior, on the other hand, experiences freezing temperatures and snow lasting from November to March, so full winter wear is necessary for comfort: a heavy coat, a warm hat and gloves or mittens.


Spring and Fall: Spring and fall can often be very warm and pleasant, especially in June and September. Daytime temperatures – particularly in southwestern BC and the southern interior – allow for dresses, shorts and short-sleeved shirts; however, it is advisable to have sweaters, trousers and a light coat or jacket on hand as well.


Summer: Summers are hottest in BC’s interior, particularly in the south where temperatures frequently surpass 30°C/86°F. Nearer the coast, temperatures range from 22 to 28°C/72 to 83°F. Recommended clothing for both regions in summer is the same: shorts, short-sleeved shirts and light dresses in daytime and sweaters and trousers in the evenings.
