British Columbia has got to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. It is in this Canadian province where one can find all sorts of natural wonders. From mountains to rivers to oceans and gigantic trees- it’s all there to explore.
For those interested in wildlife and beautiful surroundings, Goldstream provincial park, located on Vancouver island, is a must see.
Every year millions of salmon return to their birth place to spawn and die. They come from the Pacific ocean, swimming upstream in order to return to the exact spot their parents previously inhabited.
The salmon return from the pacific ocean to their birth place.
This natural event is known to locals as “the salmon run” and every year thousands of tourists come to witness it.
After the fish lay their eggs they die. Sad but true.
Located just 15 mins outside of Victoria, a trip to Goldstream makes for a great family outing-as well as a nature lovers dream.
Excluding the salmon run (which takes place from mid Oct to early Dec), many visitors come to Goldstream to witness BC’s magnificent wildlife. From some of the worlds oldest trees to stunning waterfalls, towering mountains, bald eagles and plant life, this provincial park is a special place indeed.
