Summertime and the Living is Easy

Summer – it’s our favourite season of the year here at Wellness Travel BC. Warm, sun-kissed days find us recharging with long beach walks by the Salish Sea, floating on a lake, or gazing at the mesmerizing rush of a waterfall. How about you?

Summer 2023 also marks WTBC’s first anniversary. One year ago, after three years of pressing pause due to COVID, we took a bold step to relaunch in an industry absolutely shattered by the pandemic – tourism.

Our passion is promoting British Columbia’s and Yukon’s abundance of authentic and inspiring wellness experiences. Our growing portfolio showcases over 40 partners where people can relax, reset, and restore. Families, solo travellers, and everyone in between can be as adventurous as they want to be – or simply “be”.

Our newest partners listed below look forward to welcoming you soon!
