In less than a two-hour drive from Vancouver, B.C., you can be in a resort town nestled at the base of the mountains on the shores of a pristine lake in the Fraser Valley. Harrison Hot Springs draws travelers who not only want to enjoy the relaxing hot-springs waters, but also want to get out and explore the surrounding scenic landscape.
For those with limited time and the desire to experience nature, a 1.5-hour Harrison River Eco Tour is the perfect solution. At the Harrison Hot Springs Resort dock, board a Harrison Eco Tours jet boat and take in the scenery from the river. Wildlife frequently spotted along the way include bald eagles, ospreys, seals and herons. The tour travels down the scenic Harrison River as far as Harrison Bay and Harrison Mills, near Kilby Provincial Park, and back.
