Wanderlust and golden dreams first lured travelers to Boundary British Columbia, a mineral-rich swath of land in the Thompson-Okanagan Region of BC, where the 49th parallel marks the boundary between Canada and the United States. Canadian landscapes of cedar, spruce, and pine forested mountains, sweep into ranch lands and lush, fertile valleys, bound together by the Kettle River, flowing some 282 km (185 mi) from its source in the Monashee Mountains, all the way to the community of Christina Lake BC.
Let go of your endless “to do list” on the wide, open, and rambling Dewdney, Kettle River and Trans Canada Trails that criss-cross the valley and river beds, offering a natural respite from an otherwise over-connected world. The extra long days of the Boundary summer magically fill with appointments to fish, swim and boat at Christina or Jewel Lake. Spend some time at the Kettle or Granby Rivers and soak up the sun.
Travel Boundary Country uncovering stories of gold-seekers, railway wars and Doukhobors at cultural centres, heritage sites and galleries from Grand Forks to Rock Creek, Midway, Greenwood, and Christina Lake.
Boundary BC festivals and events celebrate the blues, homecoming and the love of baseball. Home of the Grand Forks Invitational Baseball Tournament, you’ll want to tour and taste your way through Boundary British Columbia before or after the games, experiencing the richness of rural life at community farmers’ markets, and the Rock Creek Country Fair.
