British Columbia is known for its natural beauty. The province is very diverse and includes beaches, forests, mountain ski resorts, wineries, ranches and more within its extensive borders. British Columbia holidays offer plenty to see and do, from hiking through the mountains to whale watching on the coast.
This province has plenty to offer in both winter and summer. The Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island coastal regions have much warmer winters than the rest of the country and snow is rare in the area. However, coastal mountains and the interior regions of the province get plenty of snow and ice. In the summertime, the weather is typically sunny and warm throughout British Columbia, so holidaymakers should bring lots of sunscreen. The time zone is GMT-7.
British Columbia holidays are great for winter sports. Winter is generally the ski season, and resorts all over British Columbia are open for business between November and early April. There are many resorts to choose from, many of which are near larger cities. Whistler is just a couple of hours away from Vancouver and Big White is a short drive from Kelowna. Most resorts offer snowboarding, snowshoeing and tubing alongside traditional alpine and cross-country skiing.
There are many different summer activities available to holidaymakers in British Columbia. The warmer weather is great for exploring the cities of Vancouver and Victoria, going hiking, viewing wildlife or camping. Whale watching tour companies operate all over the coast, offering opportunities to see these animals in their natural habitat. The Okanagan region in the interior is home to many wineries, farms, ranches and orchards, making central British Columbia holidays a source of culinary delight.
