Vancouver & British Columbia

From the modern metropolis of Vancouver to remote islands and forested mountains, holidays to British Columbia provide modernity and wilderness in abundance. Climb aboard the world famous Rocky Mountaineer railroad for a thrilling overnight adventure through the mountains, or pick up a car and enjoy a British Columbia fly drive through wine country, over mountain passes and up the fabled Sunshine Coast. A short ferry ride or seaplane flight away is Vancouver Island with its colonial era capital, Victoria, from where sightseeing trips to spot orcas, whales and dolphins are easily taken. For a truly memorable experience stay at a British Columbia wilderness lodge with the chance to spot grizzly bears, brown bears, elk and maybe even wolves. Enjoy Vancouver’s cutting edge food and drink scene with Asian inspired Pacific Rim cuisine, local Okanagan wine and some of North America’s best craft breweries.
