Book Synopsis

British Columbia is richly blessed with lush temperate rainforests, snow-capped mountains, rugged coastlines and unique wildlife. 125 Nature Hot Spots in British Columbia is a beautifully illustrated guidebook that explores this province's remarkable splendor and natural diversity. This second edition has been totally updated with new information and 25 additional destinations for nature lovers.

Each entry includes a descriptive destination profile, beautiful four-color photographs and at-a-glance information about the location and available activities. This new edition also features QR codes, which will allow readers to easily access information online about each hot spot.

The destinations are divided into six chapters - Vancouver Island and the Coast; Central British Columbia; Lower Mainland; Okanagan, Similkameen and Area; Kootenay Region; and Northern British Columbia. Here are just some of the new locations featured in this edition:

  • Howe Sound Crest Trail, which follows a picturesque ridge overlooking Howe Sound
  • Nootka Island, where you can spot coastal wolves and whale watch from shore
  • Savary Island, which has rare forested sand dunes
  • Willow Point Reef, an accessible spot to explore tidepools teeming with sea creatures
  • And many more!

Anyone who is eager to discover new places in British Columbia to hike, photograph wildlife, camp and paddle - whether going on a day trip, a weekend getaway or an extended holiday - will welcome this thorough and appealing guidebook.
