Explore the Beauty of Vancouver

Vancouver Canada is a young, vibrant coastal city surrounded by magnificent mountain backdrops, a beautiful coastline and lush evergreen forests. It has been rated one of the most desirable cities in the world to live in for five years running.

Vancouver’s landscape is very diverse offering beaches, mountains, dense forests and parks, and an inviting city centre all within easy grasp. Vancouver’s natural surroundings offer many activities ideal for those who enjoy outdoor recreation and sport including eco tours, ocean safaris, and adventure bike rides into the majestic Seymour forest. It is also home to a rich and growing arts & cultural community and fantastic summer festivals including the Celebration of Light Fireworks Festival and a world renowned Jazz Festival. A holiday in Vancouver is bound to be exciting.

Vancouver is a primary shooting location for many American and Canadian TV and film productions. It is often referred to as Hollywood North, so don’t be too surprised if you happen to see your favourite celebrity walking down Robson Street or if you stumble upon a film set from time to time!

Downtown Vancouver is nestled in next to the waterfront and the magnificent Stanley Park. It features fantastic architecture, plenty of green space, and a library built to look like Rome’s Coliseum. Downtown is also home to many theatres, sport and musical venues, and great shopping. From here you’ll also find easy transit access to Vancouver’s iconic Gastown or Granville Island, home of ‘improv comedy’, local theatre, and a popular indoor farmer’s market. Summer evenings are ideal for a stroll along the waterfront or dinner at one of two rotating restaurants with 360 degree city views. You can also take a sky ride up to the peaks of Grouse Mountain to watch the sunset over the city or visit Vanier or Stanley Park for some theatre under the stars.

Vancouver is also a short ferry trip from Vancouver Island and the province’s capital (Victoria), and is a pleasant driving distance from Whistler, where many 2010 Olympic events took place. Alternatively, a five hour drive or short flight to the East will land you in the Okanagan, home of British Columbia’s wine country and a few of Canada’s best wineries.

Vancouver is the first port of call for many tourists taking an Alaska Cruise to the ice sheeted waters of Alaska’s famous national park, Glacier Bay. These cruises are highly recommended as they voyage to some of the world’s most isolated and picturesque locations; some of which are so out of reach they’re completely inaccessible by land.

Holidays to Vancouver are sure to leave you wanting more. From the vast expanses of natural scenery and outdoor sport & leisure opportunities to the rich multicultural spirit and quickly growing arts community, there really is something for everyone.
