Coquitlam, BC, Canada
100 Mile House is one of the area's largest communities with a population of 12,000. This town's beginnings go back to the gold rush days when 100 miles from Lillooet, a stagecoach stop was set up to refresh travellers. Today, one of the original BX stage coaches sits on display at the north end of the town. The town's first roadhouse, built in 1862, has since burned down, but 100 Mile House remains as an important service centre for the South Cariboo. Immerse yourself into the great outdoors with a two-day Canoe Safari through Moose Valley Park. Accessed west of 100 Mile House, this chain of 12 wilderness lakes is prime for watching wildlife like moose, sand cranes and bald eagles. For birdwatching without the energetic trek, head west of Highway 97 to the town's eight hectare wetland marsh. 100 Mile House, the self-professed "International Nordic Ski Capital" (and who can argue with a town that displays the world's largest pair of cross-country ski outside its Visitor Info Centre), offers a 200 km/125 mi machine groomed trail system. No wonder the local Cariboo Marathon attracts an international field of skiers every February. Other winter activities include snowmobiling, dog sledding, ice fishing and downhill skiing.
