Vancouver – Tours

Tours in Vancouver

The best of both worlds, Vancouver’s sleek cosmopolitan centre boasts stylish brunch spots, cool microbreweries and eclectic markets, but should you head even a short distance out of town, you’ll find yourself transported to dense forests of towering pine and cedar.

Our Western Journey tour will take you from Calgary to Vancouver over the course of eight days. Visit the location of the bobsleigh track from the film Cool Runnings in Calgary’s Olympic Park, before you journey on in search of relaxation in the hot springs of Banff. Take in breath-taking views Whistler’s mountainous expanses aboard the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola, and don’t miss the chance to see magnificent whales breaching from the pristine waters of their natural habitat.

Alternatively, take our nine-day Whales, Bears and Vancouver Island tour, combining the trendy modernity and cultural diversity of urban Vancouver with the rugged wilderness of Vancouver Island – a haven for foodies and wine connoisseurs, water-sports enthusiasts and nature lovers. Here you'll discover the wild inhabitants of British Columbia, observing orcas and majestic humpbacks, and hiking through lush forests populated by mighty grizzly bears, circling eagles and moose.
