#ExploreBC

Adventure. Beauty. Connection. Tranquility. Whatever you’re seeking, or craving, as you venture back out into the world, thankfully, you don’t need to travel far. You can experience incredible nature, culture, flavour, and adventure right here in BC’s wild backyard. Our home is unlike any other place on earth, and this summer, you can rediscover its natural beauty. Learn More.



Know Before You Go:

Planning and Prevention Measures
To protect yourself and do your part in containment of the virus, follow the same advice for cold and flu season: wash your hands often with soap and water, cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, avoid others who are unwell, and stay home when you are sick. Visit the BC Centre for Disease Control (BC CDC)’s website here for more detailed preventative measures.

Travelling Safely and Responsibly in BC
Travelling in BC may be a little different this year. We’ll need to take more time with planning, and be more conscious of our impact on communities—especially the smaller ones, when we visit. As a starting point, Destination BC has compiled 10 tips to help you plan and travel responsibly in BC this summer.
