Situated about a hour drive east of Vancouver,  Abbotsford is notable for its diversity of landscape and people. With swathes of agricultural land, Abbotsford has retained its strong roots as a farming community. But with development and a rising population, Abbotsford also offers urban amenities with a downtown core of trendy coffee shops and shopping.  If it’s the outdoors that draw you here, you can take to the mountains to hike or cross-country bike, or you can bike miles of rural roads, visit the lakes and parks while taking in stunning views of Washington’s Mount Baker and the BC Coast Mountains.
