An adventure in Vancouver

Vancouver effortlessly combines the excitement of a modern city with the rejuvenating spirit of the great outdoors. Often voted nicest place to live in the world, is perhaps even nicer to visit. Nature and city come hand in hand. On one side, you have wild Vancouver Island, shielding the city from the Pacific. On the other side, the mountains are ripe for exploring.

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. Outdoorsy types will flourish in the forests and foodies will love the craft beers and generous Canadian-American food. Holidays in Vancouver have some of the mildest weather in Canada and neighbouring Vancouver Island is even more temperate. But many who come to this friendly city are seeking something more extreme. Some might be cruising on to Alaska, but you can seek adventure in the Rocky Mountains or drive two hours north, where Whistler's ski slopes, biking, hiking, and mountains of cheesy chips await. Book flights to Vancouver and get ready to explore.

Gastown

Founding fathers are often remarkable characters. Vancouver’s are no exception. Though British explorer George Vancouver gives the city its name, it was Gassy Jack who set up the first tavern in the region. His mottled bronze likeness stands down the road from the town clock, which runs on steam and spouts it like a kettle. It is in this area that you’ll find plenty of restaurants. Photographers, head to Vancouver Lookout for views of the city harbour and take a picture of Hotel Europe, which resembles New York’s Flatiron Building.
