In British Columbia, the region that is home to cities such as Vancouver and the capital of Victoria, there is a backdrop of natural exquisite beauty including the towering thousand-year old cedars and the soft powdery snow and the rugged points of the Rocky Mountains. Head to Vancouver Island to view magnificent old-growth forests and observe fascinating pods of whales, take a cruise up the Inside Passage, a spectacular journey past rocky shorelines and lush rainforest or drive through the exquisite vineyards of Okanagan Wine Country, stopping to taste a vintage or two!
Vancouver, the largest city in British Columbia is the cosmopolitan and cultural centre of the region where variety is the key. Here you can ski, hike and play golf all in one day! A visit to Stanley Park is a must, where you can stroll or cycle around a paved 10-km loop while soaking up the magnificent mountain, ocean, forest and city views which surround you. For a more arial panorama, take the 100-passenger tram up Grouse Mountain, or if you're feeling more energetic you can hike via "Mother Nature's Stairmaster", Grouse Grind. Combine all this with fine dining in some fantastic restaurants and the beautiful architectural sights that the city buildings have to offer and you have the perfect city to explore.
