Tailor-made Vancouver Holidays

vancouver holidays

One of the most laid-back cities in Canada, cosmopolitan Vancouver is easy to love. From its eclectic neighbourhoods to its vast wilderness, there is plenty to see and do here – especially if you’re seeking an adventure jumping off point. Soak up the emerald glow of Stanley Park and its 1,001 acres; explore Vancouver Island; head out to sea in search of orcas humpback whales; and indulge in local delicacies at Granville Island Market. Thrill seekers will love taking on the ‘Grouse Grind’, a gruelling hike to the summit of Grouse Mountain, and crossing the vertiginous Capilano Suspension Bridge. Whatever takes your fancy, our Experts can create a tailor-made Vancouver holiday to suit you.

When to Go to Vancouver

Vancouver has it all – regardless of the season! This year-round destination is just that, and the best way to decide when to go is to base your visit on your interests: visit in the spring and summer for fantastic wildlife opportunities and warm weather, or in the winter for snow-dusted ski peaks. The shoulder seasons (Mar-May and Sep-Oct) are great if you’re looking for fewer crowds and more affordable deals.
