Clearwater

Clearwater, Central BC just a five and half hours’ drive from Vancouver brings you into some of the most pristine natural surroundings providing travellers with unparalleled outdoor adventure, rich culture and history.

In summer, fish, hike, golf, kayak, or white-water raft. Cross-country skiing and downhill skiing are great winter options. Year round, wildlife viewing and bird watching is spectacular at nearby Wells Gray Provincial Park, which also offers a campground and backcountry camping.

One of the more popular natural wonders inside Wells Gray Provincial Park is Helmcken Falls, plunging into the gorge at 141m (463ft) making it the fourth highest waterfall in Canada. A short paved side road from the main Wells Gray Park road leads to Helmcken Falls. A viewing platform on the rim of the canyon provides a panorama of the falls and canyon.
