Flights and holidays to Vancouver, Whistler & Victoria

Vancouver map Vancouver video

Vancouver, Whistler and Victoria are British Columbia’s coastal gems, nestled in idyllic settings between the Pacific Ocean and the Coastal Mountain range. There are few places in the world that you can have so many different types of experiences and holidays in one trip, and the perfect holiday to British Columbia includes visiting them all either on a short break or fly drive. Far from your average holiday destinations, nowhere else in the world allows you to sail in the morning, ski in the afternoon, shop in world-class shopping districts, and offer you out-of-this-world culinary adventures in one trip.

Getting there

Vancouver is the glistening city set on the shores of the Pacific Ocean with an incredible mountain backdrop. Voted the best place in the world to live, you won’t want to leave when you visit here. Vancouver is the perfect choice for a City Break with a twist. Think glamorous city chic meets the outdoor and adventure enthusiast, and you might have an idea of how active yet uber cool the city is. Whether you want to spend your days sailing on the Strait of Georgia, shopping on Robson Street, hiking Cypress Mountain, cycling the seawall, exploring Granville Market, indulging in China Town... the list of things to do and see is endless.

A short but incredibly scenic drive along the Sea-to-Sky Highway brings you to Whistler, the year round mountain resort town. The pedestrian village means that you don’t need the hassle of driving as everything is on your doorstep, be it excellent dining options, shopping, bars and a myriad of outdoor and adventure activities. The surrounding scenery is breathtaking, so you will want to spend as much time as possible outdoors exploring the endless amounts of hiking trails, adrenaline fuelled activities, mountain biking, or enjoying the view from the Peak 2 Peak Gondola. In the spring and summer months take a walk past the Golf Course, with the green keepers keeping the course pristine this turns the course into a 5* gourmet dining experience for the black bears that love to munch on the lush grass on the fairways!

A trip to Victoria is kick started with a short 90-minute ferry ride across the Strait of Georgia, where you can look back and view Vancouver from a different angle. Once you arrive in Victoria enjoy a relaxing stroll along the Inner Harbour towards Fisherman’s Wharf, with floating houses and shops. During the summer months you can feed the gentile and polite harbour seals which is always a great story to tell on your return. Victoria is one of the best places to embark on a whale watching tour from, and one to tick off your bucket list, as you observe Killer Whales in the area (from April-October) and other intriguing marine life. For a truly unique experience, travel back to Vancouver by floatplane which unveils the incredible surrounding scenery of the area.

Flying with us you can enjoy direct, non-stop flights from London Gatwick, Manchester and Glasgow to Vancouver YVR Airport. Just a short transfer or train journey on the Canada Line takes you directly into the heart of the city, and to one of Vancouver’s beautiful downtown hotels. Staying in downtown is perfect, as all of the city’s best attractions are in easy walking distance, and you will love exploring the colourful neighbourhoods and districts.
