Whale watching

A short ferry ride from Vancouver city is Vancouver Island’s world-famous Pacific Rim National Park, the whale-watching centre of Canada. It's one of the best places in the world to see orcas as well ashumpback, minke, grey whales and porpoise.

Bear watching

Get a glimpse of the grizzlies, who from spring to autumn can be seen feasting on migrating salmon. Black bears also live here, and you may even be lucky enough to see the elusive Kermode (or spirit) bear which is a white mutation of the black bear species.

The Rockies

The Rocky Mountains are a spectacular mountain range, home to national parks ideal for alpine activities and a range of wildlife including elk, moose, bears, cougar and deer.  



The city of Vancouver is in one of the most beautiful city settings in the world. Host of the 2010 Winter Olympics, the city has historic districts, lush gardens, and wilderness parks within its environs.


The quiet, attractive city of Victoria is the province’s political centre. The many-domed Parliament buildings are an impressive sight, particularly at night when the facades are illuminated by thousands of lights which reflect in the waters of the harbour.



North of Vancouver is Whistler, the largest ski resort in Canada, set among the spectacular Coast Mountains. The skiing here can be among the best in the world with mild Pacific weather and reliable winter snow.



British Columbia is the northernmost region of grape growing and winemaking in North America, with more than 150 wineries across three regions and an astounding 60 varieties of grapes being grown.
