Buffalo Bill's ATV Rentals in Quesnel, BC: Location
Nestled in the heart of British Columbia, located just 660 km north of Vancouver or 840 km west of Edmonton, Alberta, Quesnel is from any direction some of the most beautiful countryside in Canada!
Rolling hills, rushing rivers, numerous falls, hundreds of miles of back country, it is an outdoor enthusiast's dream. Where it is possible to see moose, deer, caribou, bear, wolf or even the majestic bald eagle, Quesnel and its surrounding area is the place to experience. You can play a round of golf on one of two golf courses, head out for a day of fishing in one of a hundred lakes, streams or rivers, go camping in a recreation site or on a hillside overlooking that hidden lake that is only accessible by hiking/biking.
Pinnacles Park with its intriguing geological rock formations, locally known as "hoodoos" and its breathtaking views is only a short distance away. Canoeing the Bowron Lakes circuit, exploring Wells and historic Barkerville, or ATV-ing the many meadows and mountains are only some of the possibilities. In the fall, this is a hunter's paradise.
When you're not out exploring the wilderness, Quesnel has many community events to take in. The famous Billy Barker Days Festival in mid-July, Quesnel Exhibition and Fair in August, the BC Rodeo Finals in September or just get lost in the CORN MAZE mid-July through October.
Spend a day in the city, discovering the uniquely painted fire hydrants - brightly painted people from the past - walk across the 1928 Fraser River foot bridge - one of the world's longest wooden truss bridges - or enjoy a walk around the famed River Front Trail. Visit the Museum, home of Mandy the haunted doll, or go see Shiraoi House on the edge of Lebourdais Park and all it has to offer. Saturdays, stroll through the local Farmers' Market, enjoying the wares and fares.
Winter goes to the dogs with the Gold Rush Trail Sled Dog Mail Run in January. There are plenty of trails, hills, and mountains for snowmobilitng, downhill or cross-country skiing for the rest of the winter months.
Most of all, enjoy yourself with everything Quesnel has to offer, remembering to respect other and their property as you would like to be.
