About the Trip
Visit the Coastal Gem of Vancouver
Vancouver is a coastal gem of natural beauty, nestled in an idyllic setting between the Pacific Ocean and the Coastal Mountain range. This is far from your average holiday destination: nowhere else enables you to sail in the morning and ski in the afternoon, shop in world-class shopping districts and indulge in out-of-this-world culinary adventures. There are few places in the world where you can have so many different types of experiences in one trip. And the perfect holiday to Vancouver includes them all.
Vancouver sightseeing & activities
The biggest city in British Columbia, Vancouver is the perfect choice for a Canada city break with a twist. Think glamorous city chic meets the outdoor adventure enthusiast and you might have an idea of how active yet uber-cool the city is. Spend your days sailing on the Strait of Georgia, shopping on Robson Street, hiking Cypress Mountain, cycling the seawall, exploring Granville Market, indulging in Chinatown…the list of things to do and see in Vancouver is endless.
Voted the best place in the world to live, you won’t want to leave when you visit Vancouver! Vancouver has a golden reputation for friendly locals, clean public areas and safe streets, which all add up to a very warm welcome to this popular city. Diverse and multicultural, it caters well for a range of visitors from families and groups of friends to gay and lesbian travellers.
Exploring Vancouver & Beyond
Vancouver is a gateway city with easy access to the Rockies, Vancouver Island and other vibrant BC cities, as well as the port where Alaska cruises depart during the warmer months. With that in mind, a fly drive holiday is an excellent option. Check out our Vancouver car hire for great deals on your self drive holiday.
A short but incredibly scenic drive along the Sea-to-Sky Highway brings you to Whistler, the year round mountain resort town. The pedestrian village means that you don’t need the hassle of driving as everything is on your doorstep, from dining, shopping and bars to outdoor and adventure activities. The surrounding scenery is breathtaking, so you will want to spend as much time as possible outdoors. Explore the endless hiking trails, go mountain biking, or enjoy the view from the Peak 2 Peak Gondola. If you prefer not to drive, or are looking for an extra special way to travel Canada, many journeys on the Rocky Mountaineer train start and end in Vancouver.
A trip to Victoria kicks off with a short 90-minute ferry ride across the Strait of Georgia, where you can look back and view Vancouver from a different angle. Once you arrive in Victoria make the most of its boast to having the mildest climate in Canada. Enjoy a relaxing stroll along the Inner Harbour towards Fisherman’s Wharf, where you’ll find floating houses and shops. And if you fancy adding an Alaska cruise to your holiday, the port will be here waiting for you.
