British Columbia is a province defined by a rugged, mountainous coastline that stretches all the way into extreme wilderness territory. It is a place where many come to escape the hustle and bustle of city life, thanks to the stunning scenery and fresh air that they find. It is also the perfect place to come if you are looking for a serene mountain retreat, especially as there are a number of secluded mountain rentals that will help you reconnect with nature. When you’re here, head to the iconic Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, which encompasses rocky beaches you can hike on, and go whale watching in the shadows of mountains at Burrard Inlet. Here, you can also catch some of the best views in the area.
