Holidays exploring Vancouver

Holidays in Vancouver start in the city, but with so much to explore, who knows where you’ll end up. It sends you out into the wilds with a friendly farewell, but you won’t forget this charming city in a hurry.

Head out to ski at Whistler, explore wine country of the Okanagan, drive into the Canadian Rockies or watch whales in the wild from Vancouver Island. In the city, family holidays can navigate with ease and taste everything at Granville Market. Vancouver wears its green credentials on its sleeve. Its best asset is Stanley Park in the heart of the city, a forested park which everyone will love and full of cherry blossom in the spring – enough to warrant its own festival in April. Book flights to Vancouver and discover it all.
