Welcome to Wells Gray Park & Clearwater
Canada's Waterfall Park Welcomes you in Every SeasonImagine a place where the Clearwater, Thompson and Murtle Rivers roar and wildlife sightings are as common as sunrise and sunset. A place where it's easy to get off the beaten path, and away from the crowds, immersing yourself in real and wild nature.
The place you imagine is Wells Gray Country, the mountain communities centered around Clearwater and Wells Gray Provincial Park. 5,250 square kilometres (1.3 million acres) of alpine wilderness, borne from volcanoes and carved by glaciers. It’s one of the most unique landscapes in all of B.C., where your days are measured in your steps hiked, wildlife sightings, and the number of waterfall shots on your camera.
It’s here, among old-growth inland rainforest and soaring mountain peaks that you’ll find your wild. During Spring, Summer and Fall you can hike through ancient forests, paddle pristine lakes, and raft on some of Canada’s fiercest rapids. In the winter, gaze upon frozen waterfalls and ski down untouched backcountry slopes.
