Between Bella Bella and Prince Ruppert, the coast of British Columbia is an enigmatic region of fjords and channels among snow- covered mountains that offer a fabulous landscape adorned with waterfalls and is home to bears and whales. Their geography, at the same time so pecu- liar and so similar to the territory of the Chilean Patagonia, offers fjords, large rivers that cross cut valleys by glaciers, forests of pines so extensive that you can lose sight. All this, in a similar surface to total continental Chile, in which not more than some 4 million people lives, mostly concentrated on cities as Vancouver, that they are not at more than 50 km of the border with the US.
