The westernmost province in Canada is British Columbia (BC), situated between the Rocky Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. The province’s capital is Victoria, a city located at the southern part of Vancouver Island. There are many parks with trails, such as Glacier National Park, for hiking and biking, and ski-lovers should go to Whistler Blackcomb, a large ski resort that hosted the 2010 Winter Olympics. If you rent a car, don’t forget to enjoy the views of the Sea-to-Sky Highway between Whistler and Vancouver, Canada’s largest city and BC’s business centre, also popular for its film industry.
