Travelling, staying and adventuring here illustrates just why these productions are perennial film location favourites:

GOLD RUSH TRAIL

This historic trade route, laid by Indigenous peoples, was used by colonial settlers during the 1800s gold rush. Find rare inland rainforest, lava-formed canyons, rolling grasslands, semi-arid desert, and granite-walled gorges. Follow the footsteps of early settlers, experience Indigenous culture, and take to the trails, returning to the comforts of a lakeside lodge or remote cabin.

CHILCOTIN

A vast landscape home to a diversity of wildlife, containing tremendous geographical variety, including dry grasslands, glacially-capped mountains and azure-blue lakes. Choose-your-own-adventure with hiking, fishing, lakeside retreats and guest-ranching experiences. Reach remote lakes with guided horse-packing trips or flightseeing tours.

GREAT BEAR RAINFOREST

One of the largest remaining tracts of coastal temperate rainforest, the rugged expanse draws enthusiasts looking to fish, hike, bike, kayak or SUP, take an eco-tour, soak in oceanside hot springs and enjoy natural splendour – home to killer whales, wolves and the mysterious white Kermode ‘Spirit’ Bear.

LAND OF HIDDEN WATERS

Hidden lakes, incredible freshwater fishing and a magnet for water-worshippers. Stay in lakeside resorts, cabins or family-friendly campgrounds while fishing, paddle boarding, kayaking, hiking, horseback riding or taking ATV tours. Winter months offer ice fishing, cross-country skiing, and cozy cabins.

A stay at the White Saddle Country Inn is part of a stellar prize package inspired by the History Channel’s <em>Alone</em> series.
