    Vancouver Holidays

    Sitting on the shores of the Pacific, British Columbia’s largest and most popular city, Vancouver has been voted one of the most liveable cities in the world and quite rightly so. This modern, eclectic city is simply surrounded by nature. Nestled between the sea and the mountains, Vancouver has managed to preserve many of its green spaces, including beautiful Stanley Park. Located next to the shimmering skyscrapers of downtown, Stanley Park is recognised as one of the great urban parks of the world with 1,000 acres of greenery, walking trails, lagoons, statues and monuments. Combine that with the lively entertainment of downtown and you have a city that will capture your heart.

    Vancouver Island

    While Vancouver is the largest city, the capital of British Columbia is Victoria, a picture-postcard city that sits on the southern tip of Vancouver Island. For many, Victoria is the arrival point when visiting the island but it certainly shouldn’t be the only place you visit here. Separated from the mainland by the Strait of Georgia Vancouver Island is home to a wide variety of attractions, activities, unique experiences and most importantly, wildlife.

    Alberta

    Skirting British Columbia’s eastern border, the mountain region of Alberta provides the perfect playground for adventure seekers. The province’s biggest city, Calgary lies to the south of Banff National Park and acts as a gateway to the Canadian Rockies, here you can experience the vibrant city centre and the thrill of the great outdoors all in the same day. Home to world class events and attractions such as the annual Calgary Stampede, Calgary has exciting neighbourhoods, a warm and friendly atmosphere as well as magnificent landscapes in every direction. Alberta’s capital and second largest city, Edmonton is a modern, lively city which is often used as a stop-over en route to Jasper National Park which is just a four-hour drive to the west.

    The Canadian Rockies

    Spanning the provinces of British Columbia and Alberta, the impressive Canadian Rockies is home to Jasper National Park, with its famously accessible Athabasca Glacier and Banff National Park, the site of picturesque Lake Louise. Linking the parks together is the outstanding Icefields Parkway, a 144-mile wonder that is well known for being one of the most beautiful journeys in the World. In the summer the Canadian Rockies are a wonderful place to hike, bike and canoe, whilst in winter the snow falls and they become a winter wonderland for ski and snowboard enthusiasts. Best explored by road, the Canadian Rockies makes a wonderful self drive holiday or motorhome adventure.
