Part of what makes the westernmost province of Canada so unique is the eclectic landscape. British Columbia geography presents a stunning backdrop for any outdoor activity, and the landmarks will surely complement the exploration as you discover your new frontier.


Every year, thousands of travellers and outdoor enthusiasts visit this slice of paradise to experience the beautiful British Columbia mountain ranges, forests, and prairies, that lend themselves to create an unforgettable adventure.


Echo Valley Ranch & Spa is embedded in all of it and makes the perfect destination for your British Columbia vacation.


The Marble Range


Perhaps the best place to start in the Marble Mountain Range would be at the provincial park that bears its name. Located just 10 minutes from Echo Valley Ranch, Marble Range gets its name from the outstanding limestone geology - also known as karst - that characterizes the mountains along with other various formations, including sinkholes, caverns, and disappearing streams. While this park remains popular for hunters, hikers, and horseback riders, the trails are rough, and many of the karst formations are found only from within the apex of the alpine.


Cariboo Mountains


Home to the Niagara Creek watershed, the Cariboo Mountains offer a diverse array of outdoor attractions. Still, they have become famous for their endless fishing opportunities, consisting of crystal clear waterways and vibrant wetlands. From Chinook salmon to rainbow trout, the Cariboo Mountains are sure to please any angler, including the bears, as one of the largest grizzly bear populations in the British Columbia interior resides here. Within the Cariboos, the lower Mitchell River is considered a crucial spawning and feeding habitat for fish and accounts for diverse waterfowl populations who mate and feed there as well.


Fraser Canyon


The volcanic remnants in Fraser Canyon are spectacular scenic attractions rife with craggy ravines, meandering rivers, and incredible lakes. Drive through towering mountains as you navigate the Fraser River valley's roadways and tunnels in search of the perfect vantage point. The canyon's historical significance also presents a meaningful educational opportunity with several bridges, monuments, and landmarks along the way. Mostly derived from the river's numerous tributaries, many sub-canyons exist within the immense Fraser Canyon.
