Investment Opportunities

Located one day’s drive north of Vancouver along BC’s famous Gold Rush Trail, the Wells, Barkerville, Bowron Lakes area is one of the most unique concentrations of heritage attractions, outdoor recreation opportunities, and artist communities in western Canada.

Home to Barkerville Historic Town, western North America's premiere heritage attraction, Bowron Lakes Provincial Park, voted one of the top 10 canoe circuits in the world by Outside Magazine, and Wells, a restored 1930's mining town chalked full of unique architecture and fascinating galleries, the area is primed for growth, and poised to affirm itself as one of the premiere year-round tourist destinations in British Columbia.

With annual visitation rates to the area currently hovering around 100,000, and an increased awareness of historical, cultural, and eco-tourism amongst the travelling public, now is the perfect time to invest in the Wells, Barkerville, Bowron Lakes area.
