Explore the great outdoors in Vancouver, Canada’s hidden natural gem.
Take a leisurely stroll through Stanley Park; visit the Yaletown Marina to lust after luxury yachts, and head to Grouse Mountain for spectacular views across the city, a spot of hiking and the chance to explore the wilderness. If you’re planning a trip on the Rocky Mountaineer, the world’s greatest train journey, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for Vancouver’s best highlights; think thunderous waterfalls, majestic mountains and sprawling, ancient forest.
Combine your visit to Vancouver with a trip to Banff: the heart of the Rockies. Or, for even more Canadian adventure, head to Toronto for glittering skylines and Lake Ontario. You can even twin your Vancouver stay with a city break in New York where you’ll find Broadway, Central Park and some of the world’s most iconic landmarks.
