This Map Will Take You On The Most Epic Road Trip Through BC Anyone's Ever Been On

"We should totally go on a road trip this year", says literally everyone. Why do we keep disappointing ourselves by not following through with these plans? Let's stop the talking, and actually go out there and start road tripping! Let's seize the day!

"But I'm not even sure where I would go." Tell the friend who says that next to sit down and send them this, we've got your back.

This trip has been divided into two maps (Map 1 and Map 2) so you can do half of it one weekend and half of it the following. Or if you're savage enough, you can do the whole thing in one go!

Well what are you waiting for?! Tag your friends and #ExploreBC!

1. Whytecliff Park // West Vancouver

Start off strong with a morning/afternoon picnic at Whytecliff Park. Only the real pros can make it all the way to the island in the middle of the water.

2. Stawamus Chief // Squamish

This is one of the most famous hikes (or gondolas) in BC with a view to die for, and if you've never been, it's an absolute must do this summer.

3. Garibaldi Lake // Squamish

Though it may look cold, Garibaldi lake is a great place to hike and swim. Who could pass up an opportunity to swim in a glacial lake?!

4. Brandywine Falls // Brandywine falls provincial park

More of a short nature walk than a hike, Brandywine Falls is great for the laid back outdoor enthusiasts out there.

5. Superfly Ziplines // Whistler

There're a million things to do in Whistler but zip-lining through the trees and mountains definitely sounds like a worthwhile stop.

6. Nairn Falls // Pemberton

60 meter high waterfalls and an easy 1.5km hike to the viewpoint? We definitely suggest extending your stay and camping here overnight.

7. Seton Lake // Lillooet

If you want to relax and be one with nature for a while, then an early morning trip here is hard to beat.

8. Pavilion Lake // Lillooet

Overlooked by the cliffs of Marble Canyon, this crystal clear water lake is a good spot to stop for some lunch and a swim if you're on your way to Kamloops.

9. Kamloops Lake // Kamloops

Whether you're here for the vineyards or Mcarthur Island Park, don't forget to drop by the lake before you go! And if you really want to have a good time, rent a boat for the day from here!

10. CedarCreek Estate Winery // Kelowna

As one of the pioneering wineries in BC, CedarCreek is exactly what you need to start your Saturday morning off right with some nice wine, and great views.

11. Okanagan River Channel // Penticton

The point linked on the map, Coyote Cruises, is the starting point of this 7km lazy river. Anybody looking to spend a day of relaxation and cracking a couple cold ones, should definitely consider this. And if you don't have a tube to float on you can rent them for $6/person!

12. Road 13 Vineyards // Oliver

Who doesn't want to drink fine wine in a castle on top of a hill, overlooking a beautiful vineyard and rolling hills? That's what we thought, we'll see you there.

13. Black Hills Estate Winery // Oliver

Sample some wine and enjoy lunch relaxing with an incredible view. This is a great stop if you've got a group with you!

14. Osoyoos Lake // Osoyoos

Renting boats and floating around Osoyoos lake is a bomb way to spend a weekend with friends, definitely suggest a larger group because there're plenty of hotels that are quite close to, or on the lake to make shenanigans relaxation that much easier.

15. Othello Tunnels // Hope

Coquihalla Canyon Provincial Park, otherwise known as the Othello Tunnels, are an engineering marvel. It was a railway, now a walking trail, that goes straight through the mountains and leads to the Coquihalla pass. A nearby marvel everyone should see.

16. Harrison Hot Springs Resort // Harrison Hot Springs

After a long road trip who doesn't want to relax a bit? From pools, to hot springs, to a convenient on location restaurant, Harrison Hot Springs is the way you should unwind after all that exploring because, hey, you deserve it.

17. Buntzen Lake // Anmore

If you're on your way back and still feel like you need a little bit more nature, stop by Buntzen Lake. A leisure hiking trail surrounds the lake, as well, there is a great picnic area near the parking lot to post up and relax at before the end of your trip.

18. Home // Vancouver

The land of constant opportunity and adventure. The city that really does encompass the phrase "Beautiful British Columbia". Welcome back! You made it! And if you haven't completed this list, then you absolutely need to make plans to do so!
