Chilko Lake is located 180 air miles north of Vancouver, British Columbia, surrounded by the Coast Mountains, it is one of the most beautiful and pristine wilderness areas in British Columbia.
It has taken Mother Nature millions of years to carve out the jagged peaks of the Coast Mountains; creating hidden valleys to explore, waterfalls and roaring creeks and sweet mountain springs to drink.
To top it off she sprinkled over the land lush grasses and multi-coloured wildflowers, she inhabited it with the Grizzly Bear, Mountain Goat, Moose, and the Mule Deer. She filled the rivers and lakes with thousands of fish and the sky with millions of stars.
The Chilko area is wild, remote and fairly isolated. It is a land peopled by those with a strong sense of independence, strength of character, good humour, and a lot of determination. A land of log cabins and wood smoke, snake fences and pick-up trucks, slower time zones, and never empty coffee pots. Seldom visited and largely untouched, Chilko is like a rare gem.
Few people have discovered it, but once discovered, it is rarely forgotten. There are a few areas in the world as beautiful to explore.
