The Harrison You Didn't Know

May 1, 2017

When most hear of Harrison Hot Springs, they associate Harrison with just that...the hot springs. But, there is so much more to Harrison that we want to share. From hidden viewing points, charming cafés, and historical and legendary creatures to First Nations' storytelling, world-class fishing, and kayaking treasures, there is a whole side of Harrison that remains hidden. Locals know. Now, it's your turn.

1.   Historical and Legendary Creatures
Did you know that dinosaurs are alive and well in BC? We have a river full of them. Fish for modern-day dinosaurs, catch a glimpse of the elusive Sasquatch, or watch bald eagles soar amidst supernatural spectacular scenery.

2.   Storytelling
A Harrison Eco Tour will share the role that Harrison plays in preserving Canadian history. See First Nations' pictographs and petroglyphs that tell stories of long ago. And, be sure to ask about the hidden treasures at the bottom of the Harrison Lake! (Hint: some say it's a gold mine.)

3.   Hidden Treasures
Ride the wave and find yourself somewhere over the rainbow. Kayak from the Harrison main beachfront or from Greenpoint to Rainbow Falls.  Don't forget to pack your hiking shoes and a picnic.

4.    Adventure
Take a hike and blaze outstanding trails. Ready to seek new adventure? Take a ride with Harrison Eco Tour and run the rapids down to Hell’s Gate.

5.    Fishing
A flick of the wrist and a tug on the line, our backyard is renowned for world-class. Try a  Steelhead walk and wade fishing trip or some very fly fishing.

6. Rustic charm
Moments savoured on a front porch or back porch, is always the solution because life happens over coffee.

Harrison Hot Springs is #justuptheroad -- far enough away to feel away from it all, but only a 40-minute drive from Abbotsford and a scenic 1.5 hour drive from Vancouver. Click here for further information.
