Vancouver, sitting on the west coast of Canada, is a beautiful city, full of green parks, and surrounded by islands and snow-capped mountains, including Grouse Mountain and Vancouver Island, that make it a tourist hot spot in Canada. In the centre of the city, Stanley Park is a highlight, with 1000 acres of parkland sitting at the edge of the Pacific Ocean, where you can spot a range of Canadian wildlife and go on spectacular Pacific Rim walks. Alternatively, go north of the city, and in less than 30 minutes by car you could find yourself in the North Shore, which boasts rainforests and mountains that are perfect for that weekend hiking or cycling trip. And in the winter months Grouse Mountain offers some of the best skiing and snowboarding spots in the country. In summer, you could head to Vancouver Island and explore the Pacific Rim National Park, surf the Cox Bay Beach, one of Canada’s best, and venture into the Canadian wilderness. Brightsun Travel has a wide range of Canadian holidays on offer all year round, including luxury holidays to Vancouver, featuring incredible side trips to its islands, forests and mountains.
But stay in the city centre a while, and discover a culinary hot spot in Canada, with restaurants, bars and markets aplenty, plus trendy neighbourhoods in former industrial areas, and lots of fantastic museums and galleries to enjoy. Start your city tour at the top of the Vancouver Lookout and enjoy breath-taking views of the city and its surrounding landscapes, including Lions Gate Bridge and Mount Seymour. Then on to Gastown, where you can take in the historical side of the city and stroll cobbled streets lined with impressive museums, before dining at some of the city’s best restaurants. Head to Yaletown and discover cutting edge galleries in old warehouses, and high end boutiques and bars. Chinatown is the place to go for late night cocktails, whilst Lonsdale Quay Market is where you’ll find great fresh produce.
