This region is where BC starts getting really wild: vast landscapes without people or cities, forests that seem to be endless, hundreds of lakes. Freezing, snowy winters. The Cariboo is a paradise for nature lovers, with endless opportunities for hiking, fishing, camping, and wildlife spotting.

This region was also the epicenter of the Gold Rush in the 1860s. Step back in time in Barkerville Historic Town which is a living museum with restored buildings and workshops.
