British Columbia Holidays

From mighty mountains and glaciers, to rugged rainforests and coastlines, British Columbia is a natural utopia ready to be explored. Wander cities entwined with nature, discover breath-taking national parks, and uncover the culture of the First Nations people on your British Columbia holiday

An incredible natural playground awaits, full of stunning landscapes and nature wonders, during your  British Columbia holiday. The powder-white slopes of the Whistler Blackcomb and Sun Peaks ski resorts call to skiers and snowboarders, while British Columbia’s cities call to those who like their outdoor adventure hand-in-hand with modern urbanity.  Head to Kelowna and you’ll find a city cradled in the vineyards of Okanagan Valley, or try Victoria, BC’s capital city that sits on a charming harbour, with the wilderness and small coastal towns of Vancouver Island as its back garden. 

For a dose of pure wonder, head to any of BC’s seven national parks. Witness the shimmering Emerald Lake nestled among trees, mountains and waterfalls at Yoho National Park, or visit Glacier National Park, and explore active glaciers, dense forest, and one of Canada’s largest cave systems.

There’s So Much to Discover in British Columbia 

On your trip to BC, savouring the intriguing First Nations culture is a must, whether that be in cultural centres, Vancouver’s Museum of Anthropology, indigenous galleries, resorts or studios. 

Head to Stanley Park in Vancouver and, along with its lush forest, walkable Seawall and views of the Lionsgate Bridge, you’ll also discover the stories and legends of the region’s First Nations people through the series of totem poles that call the park home. 

British Columbia holidays are made for making multiple stops. Hire a car and discover some of the province’s many gems, like Vancouver, Okanagan Valley and Whistler, then take a ferry or float plane to Vancouver Island and see Victoria, Tofino and Nanaimo
