Holidays exploring Vancouver
Surrounded by both the ocean and the mountains, Vancouver is a vibrant city that appears to have it all – natural beauty, an exciting multicultural foodie scene and plenty of opportunities for wild encounters.
The city itself is a grid of glassy towers: explore the areas by lunching in historic Gastown before an afternoon in the Classical Chinese Garden. Veer off the waterfront into forested Stanley Park – which is one of the world’s best urban parks – to escape all evidence of the city. The temperate rainforest has massive Douglas firs, centuries-old cedars, and winding paths leading to Beaver Lake and Lost Lagoon. If you’ve lucked out with the weather, relax on one of the beaches looking out onto English Bay.
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. Book flights to Vancouver and discover it all.
