Harrison Welcomes You!

As we launch Phase 3, we invite you to

Be One With Nature

Health is a state of body.
Wellness is a state of being.

- J. Standford

Forest Therapy

Forest bathing is an immersive experience of
being in the forest. Considered a science by some

simply brings us back to nature.

Welcome Back to Harrison
As we #ExploreBCLocal


Relax and Renew

Harrison has always been a place of
health and wellness.

In fact, we can date back to
when the hot springs were initially
discovered by the Sts'Ailes people who
called the source 'Kwals' 
meaning 'boiling water'.

Filled with healing and therapeutic
benefits, our hot springs have been
revered ever since. 

Add lush forest cover and glacier-fed river
& lake, and the Harrison River Valley is
a beautiful BC playground full of
adventure and discovery.

Open Air Experiences
Golfing and Fishing

Golf is in full swing and
fishing starts on June 1st!

Fish our mighty rivers for ancient 
sturgeon or all five salmon species
with BC Sportfishing Group
Get your game on by practicing your
socially-distanced swing at
one of our esteemed golf courses.

Better yet, do both!

Plan for the Land of
Hike, Bike, and Paddle

Seek fresh forest air by exploring one
of our mighty mountains, such as Bear Mountain
 or discover hidden masks on Spirit Trail. 
Cycle our slow country roads
and taste healthy eats on
our Agassiz/Harrison Circle Farm Tour.*  

*Please check all Circle Farm Tour member
websites for hours of operations
and Covid-19 protocol.
Take a kayaking tour and uncover ancient
petroglyphs by paddling down Harrison River.
Whether you are looking for a family-friendly
