Vancouver Holidays

Bordered by mountains and ocean, Vancouver is a truly modern and multicultural city that’s inherently intertwined with nature. Explore it all on your Vancouver holiday, and discover the city’s funky neighbourhoods, coastline, urban parks, and stunning scenery. 

Vancouver holidays are an invitation to explore a diverse city, full of nature and culture, with dynamic neighbourhoods ready to be explored. Head to the historic cobbled streets of Gastown for incredible shopping, art galleries and Victorian buildings, then let Chinatown impress you with its vibrant culture, dim sum restaurants, and the koi ponds and stunning flora of Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden. South of downtown Vancouver you’ll find Granville Island, home to the beloved Public Market, with stalls offering up incredible food and handcrafted delights. 

Vancouver’s Unique Balance of Nature and Urbanity

Find a place to escape in Stanley Park, the scenic heart of Vancouver. The serene forest waits to be explored, with stunning sea views from the park’s Seawall, and totem poles that offer a glimpse into the stories and legends of the region’s First Nations tribes. A short drive out of the city takes you to Capilano Suspension Bridge, a 450 foot long bridge that takes you over Capilano River. Feel the thrilling sway of the bridge and take in the breath-taking views around you. Nearby lies Grouse Mountain where you can skim the rising treetops on a gondola ride up to the top. Find a whole range of mountaintop activities and stunning scenery awaiting you. 

A Vancouver holiday is a great place to start exploring the rest of British Columbia. Hop on a ferry or seaplane and head over to Vancouver Island, with its untouched nature, boundless adventure and breath-taking vistas. Explore Victoria, the capital of BC, or venture north of the city to the Pacific Rim National Park.
