Heritage, Arts & Culture


For visitors who would like to learn more about the Aboriginal culture of the region, the award winning Xwísten Experience Tours (Lillooet) is an excellent place to start. Visitors are invited to discover aspects of the St’át’imc Nation’s vibrant culture and history. The tour includes opportunities to view a replica s7istken (pit house), view the traditional fishing grounds of the St’át’imc people, watch a demonstration of the preservation of salmon through wind drying, and partake in a wonderful BBQ salmon feast.

The Wild Outdoors


Birdwatchers and wildlife enthusiasts have great reasons to venture into our provincial parks and onto our backcountry roads. Patient observers may be rewarded with sightings of Stellar’s Jays, Bald Eagles, grouse, bluebirds and owls, to name a few. Gold Country is also home to whitetail and mule deer, elk, moose, black bears, cougars, bobcats, coyotes, and bighorn sheep. More About The Wild Outdoors
