    See the QCI deer

    by bkathryn Written Feb 25, 2003

    This wasn't really "off the beaten path", but it seemed like it. We saw some of the little deer that are known to live in the Queen Charlotte Islands. They are somewhat smaller than the "normal" BC deer.

    Agassiz - Weaver Creek Salmon Spawning Channel

    by sunnywong Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Weaver Creek Spawning Channel is 2932 m long, about the same length as the new runway at Vancouver International Airport. It was constructed in 1965, and is operated by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. The channel compound is open daily when the fish spawn from late September to early November.

    Next to the Adams River east of Kamloops, this is one of the best sites to observe the bright red Sockeye Salmon.

    HELL'S GATE

    by yeah_baby Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Famous Hell's Gate, in the scenic Fraser Canyon, is nature at its most magnificent. Descending smoothly from highway level in one of our two comfortable 25-passenger cabins, you'll experience a breathtaking flight directly above the unique Hell's Gate fishways, where two million sockeye salmon challenge the river each year on their epic journey to their inland spawning grounds.
    Hell's Gate is located in the Scenic Fraser Canyon on the Trans-Canada Highway #1, just 52 kms north of Hope and 48 kms south of Lytton, B.C. Accommodation is as near as Boston Bar, 10 kms to the north. Being only a 2.5 hour drive from Vancouver on Highway #1 puts it easily within the realm of a day trip for adventurous lower mainland families

    Adams River Sockeye Run - Okanagan region

    by sunnywong Written Feb 25, 2003

    The Adams River Salute to the Sockeye is a celebration to honour the salmon who have made a perilous 500 kilometres journey upstream from the mouth of the Fraser River in its turbulent rapids, dodging obstacles, to the Adams River. This spectacle attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors from all parts of Canada and around the world!

    Sockeye salmon return to the Adams River every year, but the fourth year dominant run of the Adams River has historically been the largest of all sockeye runs in British Columbia. Don’t miss the next big sockeye run!

    The Adams River is located in the Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park.

    HARRISON HOT SRPINGS

    by yeah_baby Updated Sep 6, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The greater Vancouver area has some excellent hot springs to explore, including the Spa of Canada, Harrison Hot Springs.

    The centrepiece of a luxury hotel,
    Harrison Hot Springs is a resort town with recreation and health at the forefront - soothe yourself in 8,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor natural mineral hot spring pools.

    There's swimming, canoeing, and fishing on nearby Harrison Lake. In addition, there are sailboards and bikes to rent and hiking trails nearby. The resort operates all year round, but the peak season is from June through September.

    Harrison Hot Springs is fronted by a long stretch of municipal beach, so perfect for building sand castles that an annual world championship sand sculpture competition is held here in September. The pools at the hotel are for guests only - but don't be dismayed: the public soaking pool, which has cooled hot-spring water pumped into it, is large and wonderfully warm. The public pool is one block east of the hotel.

    WESTMINSTER ABBEY

    by yeah_baby Written Sep 6, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Perhaps Mission's most famous landmark is Westminster Abbey- this beautiful monastery attracts thousands of visitors annually. The Benedictine monks who inhabit the Abbey have created a self-sufficient pastoral lifestyle at this inspiring location, and welcome visitors to their grounds and for services. The views from the Abbey seem to stretch forever, providing a panoramic view of the Fraser Valley. Visitors are welcome at the chapel on Sundays from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., and on weekdays from 1:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
