Harrison Hot Springs B.C., Great Fall Getaway
Harrison Hot Springs, surrounded by mountains, on the shore of Harrison Lake, the perfect escape, & only 90 minutes from Vancouver. As one of the first tourist destinations in B.C., Harrison has been providing tired Vancouverites a place to relax and recharge for more than 100 years, offering magical spring water that would heal pretty much anything that ailed you, or so it was said. These days the magical spring water is still very popular but Harrison Hot Springs offers so much more, from hiking local mountains, to biking nearby farm country, to paddling the pristine Harrison River.
Harrison Hot Springs has seen something of a renaissance the last few years with a new pedestrian-friendly Esplanade, revitalized central plaza, new beach playground and, of course, an incredible lake with beautiful sandy beaches. Summers can be busy in Harrison with the lake and beach offering the perfect family vacation and so the Fall is the perfect time to getaway and enjoy Boat tours, Eco tours, kayak rentals, and bike rides without the crowds.
Hiking, Biking and Farms
Hiking around the Harrison area is a completely different experience, offering a chance to get away from crowded paths and trails and get in touch with real nature. Harrison offers a variety of local trails for different levels of ability but all take you into a setting that sees few people and is truly natural, truly wild.
