Welcome to Cariboo Chilcotin Coast
Populated with more moose than people, the Chilcotin lies to the west of Hwy 97, the region's north–south spine. Its mostly wild, rolling landscape has a few ranches and some Aboriginal villages. Traveling west along Hwy 20 from Williams Lake leads you to the Bella Coola Valley, a spectacular bear-and-wildlife-filled inlet along the coast.
Much of the region can be reached via Hwy 97, enabling you to build a circle itinerary to other parts of BC via Prince George in the north. The Bella Coola Valley is served by ferry from Port Hardy on Vancouver Island, which makes for even cooler circle-route itineraries.
