"Wilderness is where we become still and are able to reconnect with our sense of wonder. In the ever-increasing staccato pace of our lives, I love watching how guests drop into the luxurious stillness of my regions' wild retreats and immediately melt into the rhythm of nature. It's why I do this job—to share that restorative quality of beauty, solitude and stillness."
—Tom Abraham, Experience Designer
Canada's incredible West Coast
British Columbia’s motto is Splendor Sine Occasu, or "splendour without diminishment." In Canada’s most biologically, geographically and climatically diverse province, it may be an understatement. The urge to explore this unbelievable variety of landscapes—from grasslands to soaring mountains, ocean to a modern metropolis—is irresistible. Gaze over Canada’s tallest mountain ranges, ride through cowboy country, fish salmon streams surrounded by coastal rainforest and visit beautiful Vancouver, a sophisticated world-class city.
Discover the possibilities:
Active From Mountain to Coast
Explore a variety of epic landscapes, from grasslands and mountains to the ocean and the big city. Flightsee over Canada’s Coastal Range, hike through gorgeous backcountry at Tyax Wilderness Resort, mountain bike on world-class trails in Whistler Village and then get away from it all at the incredible Clayoquot Wilderness Resort in Tofino. Connecting all of your must-see BC stops by private plane, this remote-access adventure is absolutely over the top (in a good way)!
British Columbia Luxury Camping
Outdoor adventure just got an upgrade. Steep yourself in the wilderness of British Columbia as you "glamp" beneath the stars on Swanson Island on an elevated camping experience, complete with a hot tub and a king-sized bed. The adventure continues at a luxury mountain lodge in the backcountry, where glaciers drip into mountain lakes and grizzly bears roam across the front lawn.
Okanagan Wine & Biking
Discover the Okanagan Valley, Canada’s premiere wine-growing destination (also home to a rare desert region). As you explore a variety of spectacular landscapes, you’ll see why this journey is well worth the effort. Survey the peaks, valleys and canyons of this unique oasis. Ride through undulating vineyards, over the restored rail trestles towering above steep canyons, and sip wine with our local vintner friends along the way. B&R’s expertise means that superb cuisine, the finest hotels and special connections are all a part of your experience.
Vancouver Island Family Adventure
Hop between BC’s capital city of Victoria, the artisan town of Sooke, the wild west coast of Port Renfrew and the Cowichan Valley—experiencing all of British Columbia's big nature in between. Our route through this region brings you superb hikes, ocean explorations and some of Canada’s most spectacular wilderness (alongside some of its most temperate weather conditions!). Best of all, the routes we take are all on dedicated bike paths—perfect for the entire family!
West Coast Wildlife Encounters
The awe-inspiring west coast of British Columbia is home to some of the most incredible animals. Grizzly and black bears, orca and humpback whales, not to mention bald eagles, sea lions, salmon and otters. Travel by floatplane and helicopter to reach remote destinations. Hike in alpine meadows surrounded by snowcapped mountains and glaciers. Float on a drift boat down a pristine river teeming with spawning salmon. Imagine tracking a grizzly bear deep in the woods and observing a pod of orcas at play—all in the same day!
