Les sites historiques de Colombie-Britannique ne comprennent ni châteaux médiévaux ni ruines de temples anciens. En effet, la plupart des sites du patrimoine de Colombie-Britannique racontent les histoires de personnes déterminées ayant réussi à s'implanter à proximité de montagnes gigantesques, de forêts denses et du vaste océan Pacifique.

Quatre-vingt-onze sites historiques nationaux, dix sites historiques provinciaux et trois sites du patrimoine mondial de l'UNESCO vous offrent un vaste choix d'expériences, souvent interactives, et qui prennent place dans des endroits à la fois restaurés et bien entretenus.

Embarquez à bord d'une diligence et partez à la recherche de l'or dans la cité historique de Barkerville, ou montez dans un chariot brinquebalant au musée Britannia Mine. Découvrez la vie des marchands de fourrure sur le site historique national de Fort Langley, et celle des pêcheurs à la North Pacific Cannery. La Kettle Valley Rail Trail suit un trajet historique, passe sous des tunnels et traverse des ponts sur chevalets. Effectuez une partie du parcours à bicyclette ou voyagez sur la Kettle Valley Steam Railway.

D'autres sites historiques de Colombie-Britannique se situent hors des sentiers battus, pour les aventuriers à l'imagination débordante. Suivez les traces des dinosaures à Tumbler Ridge, partez en randonnée vers le Burgess Shale et découvrez d'étranges fossiles au Parc national de Yoho. Flânez parmi les cabanes en bois délabrées des villes fantômes telles que Sandon. Vous pouvez également admirer les immenses totems mortuaires des Premières Nations Haida sur les îles Queen Charlotte.

Named for a Cree expression of 'awe and wonder', a trip to Yoho is truly awesome! The park's towering peaks, expansive glaciers and impressive waterfalls have attracted visitors for over a century.

These same features were the curse of railway engineers and inspired the construction of the Spiral Tunnels, an engineering marvel. Although many of its highlights are accessible by road, Yoho is also a hiker's dream. Discover half a billion-year old fossils on a guided hike to the restricted Burgess Shale fossil beds or take an afternoon stroll around Emerald Lake or to Wapta Falls. Grab your hiking boots for an epic day or multi-day adventure on the park's high-elevation Iceline Trail.
