Health & Safety Precautions for our Guests and Staff:

We are OPEN

BC has now entered Step 2 of BC’s Restart Plan; travel throughout the province is now encouraged

  • As of June 15, BC is in Step 2 of its Restart Plan. For British Columbians, it’s time to explore BC now! Safe and responsible travel within the province is now encouraged.
  • Indoor and outdoor dining is allowed for groups of up to six people.
  • Although some public health restrictions are lifting and recreation travel throughout British Columbia is now permitted, many Public Health Orders are still in effect and non-essential travel between provinces (inter-provincial travel) is restricted until Step 3 of the plan (beginning July 1 earliest).
  • Some Indigenous communities in B.C. are not welcoming visitors at this time. Indigenous Tourism BC has a list of Indigenous experiences in the province that are currently open and welcoming visitors.

  • The Canadian border remains closed to international visitors, including those who have been vaccinated. We are asking our international visitors to dream now and explore BC later when the time is right. While the border remains open for essential travel purposes, any person who arrives from outside of Canada must quarantine for 14 days.
  • Further details on the current orders can be found at: gov.bc.ca/COVID-19.
