British Columbia mountains highlights

  • The St Elias Mountains in far northern BC include its highest, Mt Fairweather at 4671 m, lying only 20km east of the Pacific Ocean.
  • Eastern BC is mountain country... dominated by the breathtaking Canadian Rockies and Columbia Mountains (broken into the Cariboo, Selkirk, Monashee, and Purcell ranges) in the south.
  • BC's rugged Coast Mountains line the 27,000 km of Pacific coastline, topped by 4,019 m Mt Waddington
  • 75% of British Columbia is mountainous. That's almost 700,000 km2 of mountain terrain, 4 times the size of Great Britain. Mind-blowingly huge.
