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.

Highlights

Yukon

Finally, head north on a short flight from Vancouver to Yukon to truly begin your adventure. After your arrival in the capital, Whitehorse, you'll be taken for the first evening viewing of the majestic Aurora Borealis or 'Northern Lights' where you'll be able to see the sublime beauty and fascinating array of colours of lighting the skies, warmed by a roaring bonfire and toasted marshmallows. Your stay will also include a fascinating tour of Whitehorse, a former gold rush settlement, a visit to the Yukon Wildlife Preserve where you'll be able to spot bighorn sheep, mountain goats, moose and caribou in their natural habitat, and to the incredible Takhini Hot Springs where the outdoor hot springs provide a natural sanctuary amid the cold weather. You will also have the opportunity to add on other optional excursions during your stay such as dog sledding, ice fishing or snowshoeing to further experience this unique region of Canada.
