British Columbia Holidays

Canada's most picturesque province

From mighty mountains and glaciers, to rugged rainforests and coastlines, British Columbia is a natural utopia that bursts with wilderness waiting to be explored. Whether it's a city stay or exploring the great outdoors, British Columbia holds it all. This is where you'll find mountain peaks meeting the Pacific Ocean. 

You’ll experience a holiday like no other as you meet incredible wildlife, including bears, whales, eagles and wolves, and discover the traditions and totem poles of the First Nations people. Travel through British Columbia in style aboard the famous Rocky Mountaineer train, or try your hand at hiking, biking, kayaking or skiing your way through the landscapes. For an even more unforgettable experience, head to Dawson Creek to witness the breathtaking Northern Lights. From Whistler's ski slopes and the Okanagan Valley famed for its wine, to the complete wilderness that can be found on Vancouver Island there is so much to discover. 

Combine your trip to British Columbia with the rest of Western Canada; Vancouver is known for its beautiful parks and neighbourhood feel, while Calgary is alive with Wild West spirit. Or, twin your Canadian stay with the paradise of the Hawaiian Islands, sublime beaches of California or the US national parks such as Yosemite for a truly memorable holiday.
