Do me a favour and close your eyes for a minute. Imagine a place where the words “spectacular”, “jaw-dropping” and “breathtaking” do not even begin to describe its beauty.

It’s infinite and unparalleled. There are towering fir forests, frosty glaciated mountains, dramatic coastlines, sinewy rivers, acres of untamed wilderness, an abundance of wildlife and the friendliest people you’ll ever meet.

Ok, now open. Welcome to British Columbia.

After three months of road tripping across the Canadian Provinces and after countless incredible adventures, I have concluded that it’s impossible not to feel inspired by British Columbia.

I mean, seriously. How could you not want to visit this place? Home to the most stunning and diverse landscapes stretching from the Atlantic to the Pacific, British Columbia just has to be seen to be believed.

But don’t take my word for it. Instead, here are 21 of my favourite photos from my time in BC that will make you fall head over heels for British Columbia.
