Holidays in Vancouver

Embrace the city’s diversity on holidays in Vancouver. Where one day you’ll be enjoying treetop adventures in Capilano Suspension Bridge Park and the next perusing the galleries and boutiques of the cobblestoned old town. Or take a trip up to the ski village of Whistler.

You’ll be captivated by the charm of this young metropolis, as you explore the hipster hangouts of SOMA and the historic streets of Gastown, which is where it all begun. But even when you immerse yourself in the urban heart of the city, you won’t have to look far to remind yourself of its unique location. Surrounded by snow-capped peaks, city hugging beaches and waterfront forests – everywhere you look you’ll be greeted by spectacular views of water or mountains.
