Surrounded by vast stretches of farmland, framed by the Cascade Mountains, and located just south of the Fraser River, Chilliwack—which means “quieter water at the head” or “going back up the river” in local Aboriginal languages—is home to diverse outdoor and urban recreations, as well as many backcountry cabin rentals. Known as “the Great Outside”, Chilliwack is a renowned summertime destination. Provincial parks, including Bridal Veil Falls and Cultus Lake, attract many boaters, fishers, hikers, white-water rafters, and windsurfers. The Great Blue Heron Reserve and the Minter Gardens are popular spots for bird watchers and botanists, respectively. Mountain biking, paragliding, and hand gliding are also on offer for those who want or need an adrenaline fix. Chilliwack’s historic downtown core features well-preserved heritage buildings, in addition to stylish dining and shops. An array of annual events—including the Bluegrass Festival, the Classic Car Show, the Gospel Blues Festival, and the Slow Food Cycle Tour—appeal to a variety of visitors. Chilliwack cabin rentals offer natural attractions, outdoor adventures, and cultural events, and are only an hour and a half by car from Vancouver, making this area one of the most popular places to book a British Columbia vacation rental.+ More
