Barkerville is beautifully situated along Williams Creek in the Caribou mountains. This town has a lot to offer. From daily shows and interpretations to trying delicious fresh baking to shopping at unique gift stores or trying your own luck at gold panning! Even a two day stay will not be able to cover it all! There is so much history here to discover! There are numerous hiking and biking trails you can begin all right from the hotel doorstep. If you choose to venture out to Bowron Lake or take the backroad to Likely, there is a good chance you will come across a variety of wildlife - caribou, bears, lynx, porcupine, moose. A five minute drive will bring you back into Wells, where there is more to shop, eat and walk around to enjoy the bright colors of the town.
