Day Trips from Vancouver

The Fraser Valley is a wonderful short drive east of Vancouver along the Trans-Canada Highway. Enjoy fresh water fishing, hot springs, river rafting, agri-tourism and even some local mysteries. The major centres to visit include Chilliwack, Harrison Hot Springs, Agassiz, and Abbotsford. All have a wonderfully distinct feeling and vibe, and all have unique experiences and attractions to help you create deeper connection to the spirit of the land.

The Fraser Valley traces the path of the mighty Fraser River as it winds itself towards the Pacific. Fishing for pacific salmon, sturgeon, and trout is especially lucrative on the Fraser River, and the powerful waterway also offers plenty of chances for exhilarating rafting and boating adventures. The region boasts a number of parks and conservation areas, and after a long day of exploring, many visitors choose to unwind in the Harrison Hot Springs.
You can search for the elusive “Sasquatch” or Bigfoot around Harrison Lake. Harrison Mills is home to the legendary Sasquatch, a giant apelike creature covered with hair known around the globe.
