British Columbia is a rugged. Only 3% of its 364,764 square miles is classified as tillable, making 97% too wild to deal with! Mountain ranges, an extensive coast and insular region, and large swaths of preserved land off the beaten path mean that nature is always going to remain the supreme owner of BC.
The vast expanses contained by BCs borders do include striking diversity in ecological presentation. A rain forest, a desert, several unique mountainous zones, as well as intermediate areas of climatology exist as a framework for varied types of life. Plants and animals flourish in British Columbia. Humans are the newcomers to this Canadian province.
Situated on the western edge of Canada, British Columbia remained isolated from the western world for hundreds of years. Only one major metropolitan area, Vancouver, has affected the landscape beyond ancient recognitions. Innumerous possibilities exist to explore nature's offerings from sea level to some of the highest peaks Canada has to offer!
