Renew. Rejuvenate. Re-Energize.

Wellness travel renews your mind and body. Lifts your spirits. Settles your soul. Expands your world. Connects you to a bigger, more meaningful picture.

How British Columbia is Responding to COVID-19

  • As of January 8, 2021, all non-essential travel should be avoided through to February 5, 2021 at midnight.
  • Further details on the current orders can be found at www.gov.bc.ca.
  • The Canadian border remains closed for recreational tourism, so 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 visitor who arrives from outside of Canada must quarantine for 14 days.

The Province has created a dedicated phone service to provide British Columbians with non-medical information about COVID-19, including the latest information on travel recommendations and social distancing. Information is available in more than 110 languages, seven days a week between 7:30 am-8 pm, at 1-888-COVID19 (1-888-268-4319) or via text message at 1-888-268-4319.
