A tour of British Columbia
British Columbia (BC) is a province in Canada. For those who don't know it that well: It is the westernmost province that borders the Pacific and whose name is derived from the name of the Columbia River. The province borders the US state of Alaska in the northwest, the Northwest Territories and Yukon Territories in the north, and the province of Alberta in the east. In the south, BC borders the US states of Montana, Idaho and Washington. Now you know where to place our finger on the globe. About 5 million people live in this province, which is about 920,000 square kilometers in size. The capital is called Victoria. The highest population density is found in the southeast. Here is also the vibrant modern metropolis of Vancouver, which is also the largest city in BC.
British Columbia as a holiday destination
Canada is always interesting for tourists. Whether untouched wild nature, encounters with still numerous Indian tribes or modern metropolis - Canada and especially BC has everything to offer. But you should have plenty of time. Because the numbers have already given it away. The country is vast and the population density is low. Depending on the area, you can drive along a road for hours without meeting a single person. A round trip through British Columbia with a mobile home is therefore particularly interesting. Because such means independence, flexibility and at the same time it is a very cheap way to travel. You save on hotel rooms, motels or other hostels. You always have your sleeping quarters with you - and you book it conveniently from home and can pick it up directly at the airport after arrival. Billing is based on the period of use at fair conditions.
What could a tour of BC look like?
Let's say you have 3 weeks. You start in Vancouver, the economic metropolis in the southeast. Depending on how you like it, you can of course adjust the weighting. We invest 2 days in thought and rely on professional city tours, fill up the supplies and then set off on the journey. Vancouver Island is a worthwhile destination. All you need is a ferry for the crossing. You should reserve the place in advance. Better safe than sorry. Here you can safely plan 5-6 days. Because there are beautiful primeval forests, waterfalls and the capital Victoria. Whale watching tours and the like are also offered. Then back to the mainland. Now you are spoiled for choice. The Canadian Rockies are in the far east of the province. Or how about a drive north into the Great Bear Rainforest? Much closer is the year-round tourist resort of Whistler. These are just a few really worthwhile destinations that you can visit - if you are mobile and have the time.
