Whisk yourself away to British Columbia, the incredible west coast province bursting with energy and action packed activities, spectacular scenery, enchanting wildlife, buzzing cities and out of this world experiences. Vancouver is one of the most diverse and multi-cultural cities in the world, and perfect for a City Break. Every inch of the city is bursting with life, world-class shopping districts, restaurants, nightlife, beaches, wildlife, and sightseeing. Vancouver is one of the few cities in the world where you can both ski and sail in the same day. Sample Dim Sum in Chinatown, shop 'til you drop on Robson Street, relax on trendy patios in Yaletown, and wander through the historic cobblestone streets of Gastown. We love Granville Island Public Market for a quirky day out. It displays a myriad of stalls, showcasing unique products and gastronomic delights, all fresh from the oven, sea or field. Tantalise your taste buds with an Edible Canada Tour and learn about the products on offer, taste the local delicacies and watch the professionals at work. This really is 'foodie' heaven!

Victoria is BC's capital and a quaint Victorian town perched on the southernmost tip of Vancouver Island. Most commonly paired with a Vancouver city break or a scenic island fly drive. Victoria is one of the best places to embark on a thrilling whale watching tour to meet some of the local marine life.

Vancouver Island is bursting with marine and wildlife for you to discover. One of our favorite things to do when driving from the south of Vancouver Island to north or west is to pull into Qualicum Beach for a bite to eat at the Shady Rest Pub which is right on the shoreline. Here you can sit out on the deck on a sunny day and enjoy your lunch, and you may even be lucky enough to see the local sea otters, seals and dolphins swim past with the Coastal Mountains as a backdrop. Campbell River is where to head if you would like to see a Grizzly Bear! Include a stay at the Knight Inlet Lodge on your travels where you can see Grizzly bears in their natural habitat in the 'salmon capital of the world'.

Whistler is an easy and spectacularly scenic 1.5-hour drive from Vancouver airport. The pedestrian village of Whistler is quaint, with everything that you need and a generous choice of restaurants, bars, cafes and nightclubs to keep the evenings lively, if you have any energy left over from a fun-filled day in the mountains. The best way to see both mountains is aboard a scenic ride on board the Peak2Peak Gondola, which unveils over 50km of alpine hiking trails, interpretive walking trails and jaw-dropping views.

One of the world's most popular ski destinations in the winter, the slopes and trails turn into Whistler Mountain Bike Park, with something for every level of rider, and you can ride or learn at Whistler from mid-May to mid-October. Find out more about Skiing in Whistler.

The Okanagan Valley is known as the main wine growing region in western Canada, but is also a prime holiday destination in BCs green expansive countryside that gets extremely hot in the summer months.
