British Columbia Waterfalls

Visited by the staff of

British Columbia has thousands of waterfalls, some world-famous, and others seen by no one but an occasional hiker, who stumbles upon them while exploring the untouched wilderness of this enormous province. Many waterfalls are easily accessible. There are quite a few right by the side of the road, like the ones seen from Highway 1, as you are driving from Chilliwack to Hope. Yet, many waterfalls can only be observed from an airplane, or after bushwhacking for several days. Arguably, aside from the majestic mountain views, waterfalls are the most impressive natural attraction in British Columbia.

We have seen hundreds of waterfalls during our hikes. Some of them are flowing all year long, some freeze in the winter, yet others disappear after drying up in the Fall, only to reappear when the snow starts melting in the Spring. Most are very simple and small. A few are astoundingly majestic, and (borderline) overwhelming.

Here is a list of the waterfalls of note that we have encountered during our travels. A link by each photograph connects to a trip report, describing the hike leading to the waterfall. Remember that the ground, and, especially, the stones near a waterfall could be as slippery as ice, if you decide to get a closer look. Also, beware of steep drop-offs at many waterfall observation areas.
