Le paysage historique de Cariboo est riche en vestiges de la ruée vers l'or de 1860, lorsque des milliers de mineurs se sont rués vers les champs aurifères à la recherche du bon filon. Revivez les jours incroyables de la ruée vers l'or dans l'un des sites restaurés de la ville du patrimoine ou dans les auberges qui ont adopté le passé dans leur présent.

La ville historique de Barkerville recrée l'époque de la prospection avec des personnages colorés en costumes d'époque, des événements quotidiens et une ville entière de bâtiments patrimoniaux. Reposez-vous dans un relais routier ou déambulez devant les granges, les maisons du patrimoine et les machines agricoles anciennes au Historic Hat Creek Ranch près de Cache Creek, Cottonwood House, près de Quesnel ou 108 Heritage Site près de 100 Mile House.

Vous recherchez d'autres sites historiques d'aventure ? Quesnel Forks est une ville fantôme au bord de la rivière qui était dans le passé un camp minier. Le Alexander Mackenzie /Nuxalk-Carrier Grease Trail retrace les pas d'un explorateur intrépide. Et la « Freedom Road » est un chemin d'une beauté à couper le souffle – spécialement près de « The Hill » –  c'est aussi un lien crucial vers la côte. De nombreux offices de tourisme proposent des brochures sur les visites guidées qui mettent en valeur les sites historiques locaux.
