We love a good secret. The problem is that we just can't keep it to ourselves. We think that you and your BFF should explore some of the lesser-known parts of the province this fall. That's why we came up with a list of secret places around B.C. You can thank us later. 

B.C. is massive and there are tons of hidden gems all around us. 

From secret waterfalls to hikes that have only seen a few visitors, we know it all. 

We can no longer keep these bits of information to ourselves and we decided to share our favourite places with your and your favourite person.

This fall, we want you to grab your BFF and hit the open road. 

These locations have something for everyone – especially the adrenaline seekers. 

Bookmark this page and use it as your guide to having the best fall ever. 

Whistler Train Wreck 

Address: Whistler Quarry Rd., Whistler, BC

Why You Need To Go: This is a super-secret place so you didn’t hear it from us. Step out into the chilly fall air and walk across the adrenaline-filled suspension bridge. When you get to the end you’ll see train cars that have been there since 1956. 

Parkhurst Ghost Town 

Address: Whistler, BC

Why You Need To Go: Waterfalls are great but if you’re going for something different then this is it. Fall is the perfect time to explore all things spooky. Originally built in the 1900s, this abandoned town was left for dead in 1966. Listen closely when you’re there. Maybe you’ll hear unexpected visitors. 

Kayaking In Indian Arm  

Address: Indian Arm, BC

Why You Need To Go: Only a few minutes away from Vancouver, this spot is one of the best places to kayak. There are rentals on-site so don’t worry about bringing your own equipment. Given the lush fall scenery, you'll want to bring a camera. 

Giant Pumpkin Spiced Cinnamon Buns 

Address: 2088 Commercial Dr. and 2565 Alma St., Vancouver, BC

Why You Need To Go: For four days only, a Vancouver bakery is selling giant pumpkin spiced cinnamon buns. And yes. They’re actually giant. Sale starts Friday, October 9 and runs until Monday, October 12. Don’t miss it. 

Halfway Hot Springs 

Address: Halcyon, Central Kootenay, BC

Why You Need To Go: This chilly season is the perfect time to hit up a hot spring. Not only will the water be warm but the surrounding foliage will be changing colours making it scenic and relaxing. Stress? Don’t know her. 

Rent A Treehouse

Hole In the Wall 

Address: Port Alberni, BC

Why You Need To Go: This waterfall only takes 15 minutes to get to. It’s the literal hole in the stone wall that has water flowing through it. During the fall, the water is super chilly but dip your toes in. It’s worth it. 

Hell’s Gate Airtram 

Price: $30.99

Address: 43111 Trans-Canada Hwy., Boston Bar, BC
