It seems like there are endless waterfalls around British Columbia - which are for the most part within driving distance of Vancouver. There is nothing quite like the natural energy that exudes from waterfalls. So leave the stress of the city behind, and go out into the wild PNW!
The perfect summer road trip to us would be escaping the city and hitting the road to chase some waterfalls, so if you want to find out about the waterfalls in BC you have to visit in 2018, keep reading!
Widgeon Falls // Pitt Meadows
The trip to Widgeon Falls requires a canoe/kayak trip followed by a short hike, but it is truly worth the adventure. Make sure you make this one a day trip, because once you reach the falls you will want to stay there the entire day!
Norvan Falls // North Vancouver
Located in the lush green forests of Lynn Headwaters Regional Park, Norvan Falls is the perfect spot to take a leisurely hike anytime in the year! However, during the summer it is perfect conditions as during the rainy seasons it can get slightly muddy.
Gold Creek Falls // Maple Ridge
The Gold Creek Falls is a short hike that is perfect for the warmer months, and is only a short one hour drive from Vancouver. The view above the falls is stunning, and on a sunny day the water turns a spectacular turquoise!
Kennedy Falls // North Vancouver
The appeal of Kennedy Falls is that it is relatively unknown and you can avoid the crowds. The hike to the falls also features a 600+ year old cedar tree and is pretty spectacular! Once you've seen the tree you can continue on and you will reach the cascading falls.
Kay Falls // Revelstoke
Kay Falls is a beautiful hidden gem located between Revelstoke and Sicamous that many people miss. The falls are actually just located off the highway, once you pass the Crazy Creek Suspension Bridge going towards Revelstoke, look for the concrete wall. At the wall you will find the trailhead that leads you to Kay Falls!
Crawford Falls // Kelowna
Located only 20 minutes from downtown Kelowna, Crawford Falls involves a hike that will take around an hour and a half to complete. The waterfall itself is actually quite large and you can sit atop a boulder and marvel at the beauty of this spot.
Natural Bridge // Yoho National Park
The Natural Bridge is a unique rock which has been carved out over time by the powerful water to resemble a bridge! It is quite a popular tourist attraction so can get rather crowded, but during the summer months it really is beautiful when the sun turns the falls a bright turquoise.
Moul Falls // Clearwater
You can actually walk behind the falls and find a spectacular cave to cool off in, just be careful as the rocks may be slippery! Also, you will get wet. This spot is one of the best kept secrets of Wells Grey Park.
Virgin Falls // Vancouver Island
The Virgin Falls are definitely off the beaten track and so this one is definitely for those who are experienced off-roaders! The scenery is phenomenal however, and you can hear the falls long before you reach them.
Sorry TLC, we will go chasing waterfalls thank you very much.
