Wells is a historic Gold mining town in the Cariboo Mountains. 80 km east of Quesnel on BC's Gold Rush Trail. We're the gateway to to Barkerville Historic Park, the Bowron Lake Canoe Circuit and the Cariboo Mountains. Wells was the largest town in BC north of Hope as late as the 1950's! Today, the tiny town that remains retains its historic charm and period architecture and is now renowned for our Arts, History and Culture.
