Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada:- Aboriginal Tourism BC has a one stop
shopping website for driving and sight seeing tours throughout the province. Traditional feasts of
authentic regional dishes; canoe, kayak, rafting or jet boat tours; rugged outdoor adventure or
beautiful cities surrounded by nature and rich culture each tour is enhanced with Aboriginal
An adventure trip takes on moments of magic when paddling with First Nation guides singing
traditional songs, telling stories and pointing out ancient village sites. Guided wildlife viewing of
killer whales, dolphins, porpoises, eagles, seals, sea lions and in fall the viewing of Grizzly bears
feeding on spawning salmon is interwoven with stories of transformation, each creature a
character in early creation stories. A hike in pristine rainforest or along a cool mountain stream
becomes a lesson in the interrelationship of "all that fly and swim and crawl."
Whether the trip includes horseback riding, mountain biking and swimming in the summer, or
snowshoe tours in the winter months, the experience will be infused with a perspective that will
resonate within, a reminder that we are part of the natural world.
For those who prefer luxury over adventure, there are First Nations run casinos, cultural centers,
hotels, golf courses and a winery all in beautiful settings.
For those traveling to specific areas within British Columbia, a selection of seven separate
itineraries include Exploring Vancouver and outlying areas; Mountains, Lakes & Wine Country
covering Mission, Harrison Hot Springs, Osoyoos, and Cranbrook; Vancouver Island & Sunshine

Lake; and Mountain & Lake Splendour with Banff, Lake Louise, Radium Hot Springs Region,
