British Columbia enjoys a terrific summer, much longer and hotter than the UK. With enough sunshine to ripen delicate soft fruits, such as peaches and cherries, to juicy perfection. There is also always water or the cool of altitude to temper the heat of the day.
Winter on the Coast is quite temperate with relatively few snow days and heavy frosts, particularly in Victoria which is the Southernmost point of British Columbia and surrounded on three sides by the Juan de Fuca Strait. Winter on the mainland and into the mountains is another story, with amazing quantities of snowfall and prolonged sub-zero periods.
There are a number of different events throughout the peak season, June – October. With Grizzly Bear, Whale, Seal and Sea Lion activity throughout and a number of different salmon species running the rivers in spectacular numbers later in the season.
