Languages spoken: English
Reasons to go: The northern part of British Columbia, as well as the entire Vancouver area, is a great place for active solo travelers. I’ve gone zip lining, white-water rafting, rock climbing…just in one trip! There are so many more activities available that I didn’t even have time to try, such as skiing (of course), snow boarding, hiking, etc.
Whether you drive or take public transport, it’s easy to get around and the people are very friendly and willing to assist you with your needs. And of course, the scenery is stunning.
