Mittelalterliche Burgen und Ruinen antiker Tempel werden Sie in British Columbia vergeblich suchen. Die Kulturerbestätten in BC bezeugen vielmehr die Entschlossenheit der Menschheit, sich in der einzigartigen Landschaft aus gigantischen Bergen, dichten Wäldern und dem endlosen Pazifischen Ozean zu behaupten.

Einundneunzig nationalhistorische Stätten, zehn provinzialhistorische Stätten und drei UNESCO-Weltkulturerbestätten vermitteln dem Besucher an sorgfältig gepflegten Standorten, oftmals mit interaktiver Unterstützung, einen tiefen Einblick in die Geschichte und Kultur des Landes.

In Barkerville Historic Town lädt eine Postkutsche zu entspannten Ausflügen inklusive Goldwaschen ein; im Britannia Mine Museum können Sie in einem ratternden Eisenbahnwagen fahren. Wenn Sie mehr über das Leben und die Arbeit der Pelzhändler und Fischer erfahren möchten, sind Sie am Fort Langley National Historic Site und der North Pacific Cannery genau richtig.  Die Kettle Valley Rail Trail Route führt Sie entlang einer historischen Strecke durch zahlreiche Tunnel und über spektakuläre Bockbrücken –. Hier können Sie Rad fahren oder sich bei einer Fahrt mit der rund 100 Jahre alten Kettle Valley Steam Railway entspannen.

Interessierte Reisende finden auch abseits der normalen Pfade weitere historische Sehenswürdigkeiten, die zu einer Erkundung einladen. Folgen Sie den Spuren alter Dinosaurier-Pfade in Tumbler Ridge oder wandern Sie im Yoho National Park zu den Burgess-Schiefern, einer der weltweit bedeutendsten Fossillagerstätten. Durchstreifen Sie die von verwitterten Holzhäusern gesäumten Straßen in der Geisterstadt Sandon. Oder genießen Sie auf den Queen Charlotte Islands die Stille einer Wanderung inmitten gigantischer Totempfähle, die von den Haida First Nations zu Begräbnissen aufgestellt wurden.
