Chilliwack Travel Guide
Welcome to Chilliwack!
Chilliwack sits on the Fraser River in a tree-filled valley overlooked by the Cascade Mountain Range. Only 100 km (62 miles) east of Vancouver, Chilliwack is ideally situated to offer many diverse opportunities that range from peaceful mountain hikes to heart-stopping white-water rafting. Paragliders from around the world fly Chilliwack sites that rival the best in the world. Experienced mountaineers can view the valley from jagged mountain peaks 2000 m (6562 ft) high. Impressive sights from land include nearby Cultus Lake and Bridal Veil Falls. With over 200 species of birds visiting Chilliwack, the Cheam Lake Wetlands Regional Park and the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve are must sees for birdwatchers. Chilliwack's rapids have Canada's national white-water kayaking team visiting regularly for training. Rafting and diving are also popular, while serious anglers can catch massive sturgeon—up to 450 kg (1000 lbs)—in Chilliwack waters.
