Cariboo

108 Mile House Heritage Site, Cariboo, BC
The Cariboo was a land born of dreams ... dreams of discovery, yellow dust and instant riches. In 1862, Billy Barker found gold on Williams Creek, a discovery that started a rush of adventurers from North America and around the world.

Between 1862 and 1870, over 10,000 adventurous people travelled the Cariboo Waggon Road, and towns sprang up in their wake, from Lillooet in the south to the goldfields of Barkerville in the North.

The gush for Cariboo gold soon declined, but not the trek of discovery into the rugged wilderness of the Cariboo. People from all over the world still venture here, following the footsteps of the expeditions that went before them. It is still a land of golden dreams with summer images of golden rolling pastures, grazing horses, and forest meadows filled in spring with beautiful flowers.

A journey through the Cariboo is easier now. Travellers enjoy amenities of every kind; excellent accommodations, from luxury resorts to quaint lakeside cabins, cities and towns that meet all your service needs, and fine dining and shopping. You will make many friends on your journey, from its beginning to its end. So bring your binoculars, your camera, your nature guide books and let your journey begin.

The South Cariboo is just a short breathtaking drive from Vancouver. This four-season destination offers a lifetime of memorable experiences with outdoor activities for the entire family. Discover miles of multi-use, four season trails, play a round of golf, and enjoy some of BC’s best freshwater sport fishing. Relive Gold Rush history, enjoy exceptional water recreation on countless lakes, and experience the “Wild West” on horseback at one of the regions many guest ranches and spas. Crisp, sunny winters provide the perfect setting for downhill and cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, dog sledding, snowboarding, outdoor skating and snowshoeing.

The Central Cariboo is a land of unparalleled beauty and diversity, where the geography ranges from dense forests and pristine mountain lakes to arid cactus covered vistas, rugged canyons and open plains. It is a region bursting with culture, heritage, and history. From mountain biking, to whitewater rafting and fishing in the mountains, the Central Cariboo offers year round activities to fill your adventurous soul.

Born of the adventurous spirits of the great rush of gold in the 1850s and ‘60s, the North Cariboo is still an adventure seekers destination although the quest for gold has now been replaced by the quest for endless outdoor adventures.
