Williams Lake is surrounded by six distinct ecosystems: dry forests, wet forests, grasslands, mountain tops, rivers, and wetlands. Head east to see grizzly bears, cedar rainforests, and alpine meadows. Or head west to visit sand dunes, bighorn sheep, and prickly pear cactus. These excursions (and many more!) can be experienced as day trips from Downtown Williams Lake. Visit the Williams Lake Tourism Discovery Centre to plan your adventure:
