British Columbia mainland offers scenery at its best. Half of the province is covered by productive forests. Closer to the western part of the province not far from Vancouver are the mountains of Blackcomb, Whistler and Grouse. All three are popular ski spots and excellent summer resorts as well.
The eastern part of the province features the incredible Rocky Mountains while the southern British Columbia is somewhat pastoral. Sparkling lakes, attractive beaches, orchards and vine yards along with a great amount of sun, make this a popular tourist destination.
