About Traveling BC

My Story

Hi, I’m Nicole, a wildlife biologist, university student, photographer, and avid adventurer of British Columbia. Currently, I call Victoria home and it’s one of my favorite places in the world! 

While I currently live on Vancouver Island, I grew up in Edmonton, Alberta. I got tastes of BC from family trips, so I always knew that I loved everything about BC – from the ocean to the mountains. And although I loved parts of Alberta, it wasn’t quite the right fit. Finally, after working up the courage, I left friends and family behind and moved to Victoria in 2019 for my PhD. And now, I’m not looking back! I’ve fallen completely in love with this province, and I can’t imagine living anywhere else.

So much of my time is spent exploring the outdoors of British Columbia, and I created this website to share my love of this province with everyone! I hope that you enjoy your adventures through this wonderful province, and that I can help you along the way!

What you'll find on this website

My goal is to provide everything that you need to know about traveling British Columbia. This website has a focus on the outdoors because the nature and wilderness of British Columbia is absolutely spectacular and arguably one of it’s highlights. In this website, I’ll help you with everything that you need to have for the perfect BC adventure, from choosing a travel destination, planning your activities, deciding what gear to bring…and more!

On this website, you will find:

  • Destination travel guides with everything that you need to know about the location
  • Backcountry camping and hiking guides, including itineraries, gear to bring and travel tips
  • Reviews on travel services or gear that I’ve used (I won’t review anything that I don’t have experience with!)
  • Advice on how to travel BC on a budget
  • Inspiration for your next big BC adventure!

I’m a photographer, so most of the photos on the site are taken by me during my travels. I’m hoping my photos can inspire you on your own BC adventure! You can purchase prints of any photos that you like through the shop. I appreciate any support, and any funds will go straight back into this website!
