Explore the Cariboo-Chilcotin
The Cariboo Chilcotin is a unique landscape with the Fraser River cutting through the most northern desert in North America. Wildlife abound in the grasslands rising up from the rivers edge.
The First Nations of the area continue to practice traditional cultural activities that have been passed down through generations.
The land is also rich with the history of the exploration by Simon Fraser and the gold rush that followed.
The Cariboo Chilcotin Region is located in the heart of beautiful British Columbia. The largest region in the Fraser Basin, it occupies almost 80,000 sq km of spectacular countryside. It has been recognized as the final frontier, holding some of the last real wilderness areas in BC. This area remains relatively unexplored and undeveloped.
The Cariboo Chilcotin is a wildlife viewing extravaganza. The variety of micro ecosystems found in this region provide habitat for a large number of wildlife species, many of which are at the limits of their range in the province.
The Cariboo Chilcotin region has an incredible history from the First Nations who have lived here for over 8000 years to the times of exploration by Simon Fraser and the gold rush of the 1800’s. We are locals with a long family history in the area and enjoy sharing stories from the area.
