Chilliwack Hotels

Whether you want to wade out into a clear mountain lake to fish for whale-like sturgeon, or hike across verdant green meadows below jagged, snow-capped mountains peaks, you're free to do as you please in sleepy Chilliwack. Once a small farming community, the town has retained its gentle, homely atmosphere, and is perfectly positioned for exploring the flowing forests and sprawling lakes that surround it.

Things to see

After spending a day hiking through the thick snow on the peaks, or throwing a mountain bike into challenging trails and descents, spend a little recovery time at nearby Harrison Hot Springs. Any aches and stresses will evaporate in a cloud of steam as you lie back in the spa's naturally warm, mineral rich waters. Too sunny for that? Cool off on the sandy beach bordering Harrison Lake, before trying to spot Bigfoot himself hopping between birches while out walking in nearby Sasquatch Provincial Park. Or, you could try winding through Fraser Canyon in a car, where dramatic drops down to Frazer River will accompany you all the way. You'll have to shout to be heard over the titanic rush of the river at Hell's Gate, though, as it squeezes through a bottleneck created by the meeting of the Cascade Mountains and Pacific Range. Swooping down - inches above the raging torrent of water - from the safety of a devil-red cable car at Hell's Gate Airtram, gives you unbeatable views. Back in town the Prospera Centre is filled with the sound of swishing sticks and clattering pucks, and is a great place to become acquainted with a staple part of Canadian culture.

Hotels in Chilliwack

While you won't want to spend long inside - considering the natural wonders that are on your doorstep - the indoor swimming pools and swirling hot tubs offered by some Chilliwack hotels mean you won't need to worry about rainy days. If it’s just a comfy bed and a warm shower you want, you'll find plenty of options – from budget motels through to pleasant mid-range hotels with welcoming bars. Chilliwack's a friendly place, so catch the bug and trade stories with other guests over a drink.

Where to stay

The slow pace of life in Chilliwack appeals to all sorts, and the series of short walks that orbit the town - like the Heritage Wagon Trail – are perfect for getting an early morning taste of mountain air. Your hotel will give you easy access to the gentle incline up to the viewpoint at Mount Thom, where secluded benches allow you to picnic hidden amongst the trees. The lure of the lake at Harrison Hot Springs means the well-equipped village is another great place to stay. Feel the water's spray as you open up your jet ski's engine, before returning to dry land and sampling seared salmon, fresh from the lake, encrusted in roasted cashew nuts.

How to get to Chilliwack

Visitors to Chilliwack often come directly from Vancouver, which is drivable in around 1 hour and 15 minutes. Vancouver International Airport is the easiest place to fly to, but Abbotsford International is much closer, lying just over half an hour away. Local busses run between Chilliwack and Harrison Hot Springs but, to make the most of the area, you'll need to hire a car from one of the airports.
