Explore coastal mountains and lush rainforests

Set off on an unforgettable self exploration as you journey through cosmopolitan cities, lush rainforests, remote beaches and towering mountains in British Columbia – one of Canada’ most picturesque provinces.

Take in the glass buildings and shimmering coastline of Vancouver, head up to Whistler for incredible adventure, take a ferry over to Vancouver Island to discover its rainforests, wildlife and sweping beaches or head towards the Okanagan Valley to explore British Columbia’s world-famous wine region. You can even venture further north and spend time on a real working cowboy ranch or perhaps cross the provincial border into Alberta for more incredible sights, endless adventure and unique wildlife – the choice is yours.

Self drive holidays allow you the freedom and flexibility to really explore indenpendantly, choose your own pace and to take control of your own epic adventure. British Columbia is perfect for self-exploration, with the mountain roads being easily drivable, as well as breath taking, whether you decide to travel by car, motorhome or even motorbike.
