Start Here, Go Anywhere As a student at the College of New Caledonia, you will have amazing opportunities for adventure. Northern B.C. is famous for its natural beauty, with outdoor activities only minutes away, no matter where you are. There are hundreds of lakes in the region that are perfect for fishing, paddling, or just soaking up the sun. You’ll love exploring the countless bike paths and hiking trails in the region or snowboarding and skiing on the same slopes as 2015 Canada Winter Games athletes. When you need a break, check out Play Grounds cafÊ, take a yoga class at Chinook Yoga Studio, or grab a bite at one of our many downtown hotspots, like homegrown brewpub CrossRoads.
