Vancouver and Seattle Multi Centre

Pacific City Lights

Experience the best of the Pacific Northwest on this cross-border journey and combine the style and sophistication of Vancouver and Seattle with the unspoilt beauty of both Washington State and British Columbia. Otherwise, known as the 'The Evergreen State', Washington still remains unspoilt by mass tourism and is not only home to the beautiful city of Seattle, but also quiet beaches, beautiful wine regions and two amazing national parks - Olympic and Mount Rainier. Lying just a short distance across the border is the equally superb and cosmopolitan Vancouver, a city all about the ‘great outdoors’ with large parks, breath-taking coastal walkways and lush forests to explore as well as world-class restaurants, bars and shopping. From Vancouver you can travel out into the ocean for whale watching or head out for the day on a bear tour, Vancouver isn't just a city escape.

Our Experts Recommend:
  • Have dinner at the top of the Space Needle
  • Enjoy world-class shopping, restaurants and bars with mountain backdrops in Vancouver
  • Discover the great outdoors in Vancouver
  • Enjoy a cup of coffee at the original Starbucks in Seattle

Vancouver

Discover Vancouver’s cosmopolitan atmosphere mixed with laid-back charm. If you appreciate the finer things in life, you can shop-till-you-drop along Robson Street, treat yourself to gourmet meal in Gastown or perhaps sample some of the famous local spirits by visiting a distillery. If outdoor adventures are your thing, we love kayaking in the harbour from Granville Island, exploring Grouse Mountain and Capilano Park or just chilling out on scenic English Bay Beach or in Stanley Park when you’re done.

Seattle

Visit Seattle's iconic skyline, dominated by the Space Needle and skyscrapers. Take a trip to the top for a scenic meal in the revolving restaurant, or go casual with a cup of coffee in the birthplace of Starbucks. Outside of the big city, explore the lush forests of Pacific National park, indulge in a tour at one of the many wineries in the region or head out on the water for a spot of whale watching.
