Road Trips & Adventures

“All Roads Lead to Hope” is a well-known expression in Hope, BC. We’ve always been a central hub for people travelling across British Columbia and Canada. Geographically, we are the meeting point of rivers, valleys, mountain ranges, and canyons: BC’s junction. Hope’s location makes it the perfect place to enjoy some of British Columbia’s finest road trips: explore the mountains and deserts of the Fraser Canyon, or stargaze on the Crowsnest, BC’s Dark Sky Highway. Experience the lush green abundance of the Fraser Valley’s farmland and vineyards; and the energy of the west coast’s vibrant cities. Or take the path less travelled and tour the rugged landscape of BC Route 7. Whatever the adventure you are seeking, you’ll find it on a highway connected to Hope!

The portion of Highway 3 within the Hope, Cascades & Canyons Region runs from Hope to East Gate (approximately 85 kms), a small cabin community on the eastern side of E.C. Manning Provincial Park. In between you will find the massive protected area of Manning Provincial Park, the small community of Sunshine Valley just outside of the West Gate of the park, and the popular roadside viewpoint at the Hope Slide. All areas offer year-round outdoor recreational opportunities, and of course the incredible night skies.
