Canada is a road-tripper’s dream. Book a fly-drive holiday in Vancouver with British Airways and, after you’ve enjoyed the city, start a big adventure in the mountains or cruise along the coast.
Explore at your own pace. Just outside the city you’ll come to Grouse Mountain and the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. Whistler is just two hours beyond Vancouver. This Alpine town, at the base of some of Canada’s best ski runs, is a wonderland in winter and a stunning mountain retreat in summer. If you have a couple of days, take the highway to beautiful Banff National Park, stopping in mountain towns along the way.

Before reaching the city, stop off at the Boeing Factory or Seattle Premium Outlets in Everett and pay a visit to Bellingham and Mount Vernon.
