Cariboo-Chilcotin-Coast, BC, Canada

For many, who have ventured to the region, it provides some of the greatest sightseeing road trips & adventures in the central part of the province.
The Cariboo region is filled with lakes, rolling hills, waterfalls, mountains and ranchlands. The Chilcotin region enjoys a network of creeks and rivers feeding into lakes crisscrossing grasslands, farming fields and alpine plateaus. And… the Central Coast region is protected by mountain ranges, decorated in thick lush forests while resting on the shores of the Pacific Ocean.
The CCC is home to the Fishing Highway (Hwy #24), the Heritage Highway (Hwy #26) and some pretty impressive mountain biking, hiking, fishing, horseback riding, off roading, and backpacking destinations.
