Regions of BC
If your script requires "snowy small town North America surrounded by alpine mountains", it’s here. Also known for its huge lakes with miles of shoreline, breathtaking scenery, full services and industry-friendly communities...this area is a filmmaker’s dream.
From glaciers and mountain-fed lakes to farm communities and small industrial towns, BC’s north is the hinterland with a heart. The region represents over 65 percent of BC’s spectacular and varied landscape.
The region is home to four distinct seasons, extensive and diverse forests, rugged mountains, farm land and spectacular coastal fjords.
The Sea-to-Sky Highway serves as the gateway to the Coast Mountains and ranks as one of the world's most scenic drives. Following the spectacular Howe Sound shoreline, sections of the highway between Horseshoe Bay and Squamish are cut out of a cliff.
Continuing north is the glaciated landscape of Garibaldi Provincial Park. Lastly, the crown jewel of the area, the resort town of Whistler, sits in all its glory beneath the twin peaks of Whistler and Blackcomb mountains.
The Thompson Nicola Region encompasses over 45,000 square kilometers of breathtaking scenery.
Located in the heart of British Columbia, Thompson Nicola is centered by the City of Kamloops and surrounded by dozens of smaller communities scattered throughout vast regions of desert, prairies, ranchland and snow-capped mountains – each offering their own special character.
