With the world hunkering down at home to slow the spread of COVID-19, wildlife is emerging in unexpected places around the globe, and in the small B.C. town of Harrison Hot Springs, things are getting a little wilder as well.

When the visitors are away, the Sasquatch will play. So many native animals are returning to their natural habitats as coronavirus cleared the streets and scenery of popular tourist destinations across the world, and Harrison Hot Springs is no exception.

HARRISON HOT SPRINGS, B.C. — The current global pandemic keeping people much closer to home, the world is witnessing a resurgence of animals rewilding our cities and towns. Much like the dolphins returning to Venetian canals and wild boars wandering the streets of Italy’s towns, so too has the legendary Sasquatch returned to its natural habitat in British Columbia’s Village of Harrison Hot Springs.

At one hotel in Canada’s British Columbia, the staff, now reduced down just to essential workers, have began to document the return of one such creature.

My wife and I had the most amazing holiday at Harrison Hot Springs. We left Vancouver and spent two days at the lake surrounded by eagles and fall colours.We went mid-week, which made it an especially relaxing experience, and stayed at the Harrison Beach Hotel. On our trip we saw wildlife, enjoyed the hot springs and went for walks in nature. It was wonderful! What a great getaway, and so close to Vancouver!

ROMANTIC RENDEZVOUS IN HARRISON HOT SPRINGS

Ditching the kids and running away for a romantic rendezvous in Harrison Hot Springs is easily one of my favourite things to do with my husband. Sneaking away to one of the most stunning locations just a short 2 hrs away from Vancouver is definitely our idea of a good time. The scenic Highway 7 provides a link between Vancouver and Hope that is off-the-beaten-path.  The prairie girl in me can never get enough of the beautiful scenery in this area.

LONG WEEKEND, LOW SEASON GETAWAYS

Although Labor Day is considered the last great weekend of summer, it’s not the last great weekend to getaway. Sure, you can dream of far-flung places but B.C. has plenty of quickie getaways (you can drive and ferry to) that go the distance. Think low season to save big bucks. Weekend rates can be up to 30 percent lower.
