British Columbia is a unique combination of pristine, wide-open wilderness and big-city sophistication. From Vancouver, one of the continents hottest new destinations, readers can take their pick of sunny coastal resorts, misty islands, lush temperate rain forest, rugged mountains with world-class ski slopes, alpine meadows, or verdant wine country. The neighboring Rockies are home to the most popular national parks in Canada. Banff, Jasper, and Lake Louise offer some of the nations most spectacular scenery.
