Premier Listings for the Cariboo
The Cariboo was a land born of dreams … dreams of discovery, yellow dust and instant riches. In 1862, Billy Barker found gold on Williams Creek, a discovery that started a rush of adventurers from North America and around the world.
Between 1862 and 1870, over 10,000 adventurous people travelled the Cariboo Waggon Road, and towns sprang up in their wake, from Lillooet in the south to the goldfields of Barkerville in the North.
The gush for Cariboo gold soon declined, but not the trek of discovery into the rugged wilderness of the Cariboo. People from all over the world still venture here, following the footsteps of the expeditions that went before them. It is still a land of golden dreams with summer images of golden rolling pastures, grazing horses, and forest meadows filled in spring with beautiful flowers.
A journey through the Cariboo is easier now. Travellers enjoy amenities of every kind; excellent accommodations, from luxury resorts to quaint lakeside cabins, cities and towns that meet all your service needs, and fine dining and shopping. You will make many friends on your journey, from its beginning to its end. So bring your binoculars, your camera, your nature guide books and let your journey begin.
