The City of Quesnel is located in the central interior of British Columbia, where nature isn’t just a part of life, it’s our way of life. With four distinct seasons and minimal rainfall year round, we embrace the seasons and use them to our advantage. In the winter, we love bundling up with a tea in front of the fire, but only after we’ve spent the day playing outside on the ice or in the snow. In the summer, we spend our days in the warm sun hiking, fishing, golfing and relaxing on the beach.

Here we don’t spend hours lined up in traffic or fighting the crowds on a hot day, we simply take a step into our backyard and appreciate what we’ve got. If you like quaint cafés, family dining or different ethnic foods, you’ll find them in Quesnel. All types of accommodation are available, from beautiful camping areas, to affordable motels, to quality hotels. We’ve got a vibrant and active business community and our sports complexes are some of the best in the province — in fact, for a town of our size, our amenities are exceptional, offering the chance to stay active and have fun year-round. Quesnel appeals to all ages, with something here for everyone.
