Get Fresh. And Salty. This Region's Got It All.
This region was once overrun with prospectors panning the waters for gold. These days, it’s paddlers who are plying such watery gems as the world-famous Bowron Lakes and the coast off the Great Bear Rainforest. Encompassing the quaint communities of Bella Bella, Wells, and Bella Coola, as well as the larger city of Quesnel at the confluence of the Fraser and Quesnel rivers, this area boasts equal parts saltwater adventure and freshwater fun.
