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.
