Hey….maybe you’re feeling a little down today and think… “F this all to heck, I need to get away from everything!”
I was reading this article in Thrillist about the most remote places in the WORLD! Siberia is far…and way too cold for my sheltered city upbringing.
Here are 5 remote places in BC to just get after you doing you.
01) Bella Coola
About 2,000-ish fine folks live in this little Central Coast town. To get there, you have drive to Williams Lake then head due West and take this super gnarly road down to the town. But once there….you’re living in some prime time SUPER, NATURAL British Columbia.
No one actually lives in Fraser, BC…maybe you’ll be the first? To get to this
city, town, place on the map, you need to leave BC and get to it from the Yukon or Alaska. There is a port of entry to the US in Fraser….and a Yukon Territorial Government highway maintenance camp. Neat. The instagram feed that is geotagged for the area looks outstanding. I wanna go there.
My favourite ghost town-homestead-abandoned place in BC (that I haven’t been to yet…but I’m gunna!)...Alvin is at the north end of Pitt Lake. There are no roads, you gotta boat! Or I guess be an avid hiker maybe?
This place is so wonderfully obscure, my simple instagram search found just one picture. G-g-g-g-g-ghost town!
04) Haida Gwaii
Let’s forget this Mainland living and head to the wilds of the North Pacific. Haida Gwaii is a series of islands off the coast of northern British Columbia. Not even 5,000 live in the whole region. The largest population center is Queen Charlotte City (pop. 948). I think they have some wifi so I guess I could still play Battlefield 1? And my folks said there is a coffee shop. I like coffee.
05) A weeknight Canucks game
Nothing like the quiet tranquility of Rogers Arena on a rainy weeknight when the Canucks are playing like…Columbus to recharge your batteries.
