North America > Canada > British Columbia > Ashcroft, BC

We are located in the sunny Southern Interior of the Province, in British Columbia's historic cowboy country. The diverse terrain includes sagebrush-covered hills, alpine meadows, river canyons and shady forests, and the views over the Thompson River valley are spectacular. Here, ranchers still work their herds from horseback and tumbleweeds roll down the streets on a windy day.

Excursions: Several interesting sites to see are located close-by: Historic Hat Creek Ranch (a provincial heritage site offering guided tours of an 1860s Roadhouse, First Nations Interpretation Site and stagecoach rides), the Ashcroft Museum (one of the best small-town museums in the province), and the McAbee Fossil Beds, where you learn how to dig for fossils. Several lakes are located close-by for fishing, and the area also offers excellent golfing.
Traveling by car:
About 4 hours by car from Vancouver along Highway 1 through the town of Hope and through the scenic Fraser Canyon.
