Growing up in Hong Kong we hardly ever get a chance to experience the beauty of nature, so my last visit to the Wells Gray Provincial Park was very memorable. We went during early October, the weather was perfect for hiking and outdoor activities, with plenty of sunshine. Driving from Kamloops it took a little less than two hours. We... More

Because of our fairly tight touring schedule, we only had one day exploring the park and it's really not enough, but we saw as much as we could and had a great day. Highlights included Osprey lookout which is quite a hike to the top, Dawson Falls, Helmcken falls and the Green Mountain Lookout Tower. My own favourite was the... More

Second visit of the year, the first in the spring. Autumn offers a completely different perspective and equally appealing for a photographer with different lighting and tree colours. This place should be number one on any persons visit to BC. It shows the real Canada in an untouched wilderness. The trails are easy to follow and most attractions close to... More

This park is easily overlooked when considering a trip to the Rockies, but its definitely worth spending an extra day here when travelling between Jasper & Vancouver. There are lots of lovely waterfalls to see. We were lucky enough to see Salmon jumping upstream (late August) and a bear walking down the road. Its also free to enter, and easily... More

A beautiful park which deserves to be visited as Jasper and Banff. Nice stop between Vancouver and the most famous Rockies parks

We ended up staying 3 days as there was so much to see. We enjoyed all the Falls the most but the view from Green Mountain was also lovely. There are endless Hiking Trails. The little trek out to the Ray Farm and Mineral Springs was very interesting. If you visit the Park, it would be best enjoyed in nice... More

This was a last minute decision to visit this park. And it's smaller then the famous parks in BC or Alberta. But at least as nice as Banff or Jasper.

A stunning location, we only had time to drop in on the "smaller" of the two main water falls. This is because we chose to stay at the Mahood Campsite, which turns out to be an extra 200 km drive from the other camp grounds in the Wells Grey Park! We knew we would be travelling out of the way... More

Of course the Dawson falls and the Helmcken falls should be visited in this park. Also the smaller ones are great to see. Do also the hike at Rays cabin (towards the hotsprings). We have seen a couple of black bears. Be aware of the musquitos. We spend two days in the park which normally should be enough. It was... More

The only reason this is four rather than a five is because it's hard to get to. A very long drive from anywhere (even the nearest town). Makes for an amazing weekend or week-long trip. Everything abotu this park feels like it's out of a fairy tale.
