Flights to Vancouver
Hit the slopes in the morning and the beach in the afternoon
Vancouverites don’t spend much time indoors. And with one of the world's most beautiful cities to enjoy, why would they? The city is surrounded by water and set against spectacular mountains.
The snow capped peaks that provide the backdrop also means Vancouver rocks as a top destination for skiing and snowboarding. It’s also the gateway to British Columbia and the Canadian Rockies, and offers easy access to the USA’s Pacific Northwest states of Washington and Oregon.
Set on the North Shore Mountains of North Vancouver, Grouse Mountain is a great location for hiking in the warmer months. At the top you’ll find lumberjack shows, a mountain top theatre, and a wildlife reserve, where you can meet the animals that make the mountain their home.
Capilano River Park
Take in the jaw-dropping scenery as you gingerly teeter your way across the swaying Capilano Suspension Bridge over the Capilano River. Discover rainforest walks, totem poles and Treetops Adventure – a network of smaller bridges strung between the trees.
Canada's national dish of chips covered in gravy with curds of cheese slowly melting on the top is a delicious heart attack inducing snack that you’ll find everywhere, from diners to high-end restaurants.
A buzzing and vibrant urban oasis filled with waterfront restaurants, theatres, galleries and unique shops. The Granville Island market is a feast for the senses selling seafood and fresh produce and is a favourite with both visiting and local foodies alike.
The historic Gastown district’s cobblestone streets are lined with Victorian buildings which today house everything from souvenir shops to art galleries to independent boutiques and cafes. Well worth a wander.
