Vancouver, Whistler and Victoria are three of the 'must-sees' on most travellers' journeys through British
Columbia. Enjoy a sightseeing tour through the spirited oceanside city of Vancouver with visits to historic
Gastown, the 1000-acre Stanley Park, and the public markets and galleries on colourful Granville Island.
Your tour also includes the chance to venture onto the Capilano Suspension Bridge, Vancouver's oldest
attraction suspended high above a magnificent canyon. Transfer to the world-famous resort town of
Whistler where highlights of your stay include a gondola ride and a canoe trip through beautiful mountain
scenery. A thrilling floatplane transfer takes you to Victoria where you'll participate in a memorable
whalewatching excursion through clear coastal waters before returning to Vancouver.
Vancouver is the largest city on Canada's Pacific coast, the center of the third largest metropolitan area in Canada, and the nation's chief Pacific port, with an excellent year-round harbor. Cradled between the ocean and snow-capped mountains, Vancouver's dazzling downtown district fills a narrow peninsula bounded by Burrard Inlet to the north, English Bay to the west and False Creek to the south, with greater Vancouver sprawling south to the Fraser River. Edged around its idyllic waterfront are fine beaches, a dynamic port and a magnificent swath of parkland, not to mention the mirror-fronted ranks of skyscrapers that look across Burrard Inlet and its bustling harbour to the residential districts of North and West Vancouver. Beyond these comfortable suburbs, the Coast Mountains rise in steep, forested slopes to form a dramatic counterpoint to the downtown skyline and the most stunning of the city's many outdoor playgrounds. Small wonder, given Vancouver's surroundings, that Greenpeace was founded in the city.
Located in the spectacular Coast Mountains of British Columbia, Whistler is Canada's premier, year-round destination. Consistently ranked the number one resort in North America, Whistler features two spectacular mountains, epic skiing conditions, four championship golf courses, more than 200 shops, 90 restaurants and bars, accommodations galore, hiking trails, spas and arguably the best mountain bike park in the world. In short, Whistler has everything you could possibly need for the time of your life - and so much more.
Victoria's attractions are so many, that when visiting Victoria attractions and Vancouver Island attractions, you are more likely to run out of time than run out of things to do. Your ideal holiday may call for doing a lot in a short time or, on the contrary, little of anything during a lengthy stay. Either way, the Island is bursting with attractions and things to do that provide the perfect mix of excitement and relaxation.
From museums and art galleries to castles, landmarks, gardens and zoos, Victoria's attractions invite visitors into a world of history, entertainment and colour. Take a guided tour or stroll at your own pace. The only catch to visiting Victoria's attractions is that you will want to come back again and again.
Victoria Attractions are also popular with families and are often the ideal place to let kids run wild. Young visitors will delight in discovering local marine life, bugs, butterflies and farm animals. They can assist in carving a native totem pole or dig for minerals in a scratch patch. Recreation centres, swimming pools, waterslides and mini-golf are always favourite attractions in any city.
