British Columbia Holidays
British Columbia conjures up images of epic mountain roads, glacial scenery and bears swiping salmon from streams. Spot whales breaching along the Pacific coastline, ski in some of the country’s best resorts, try surfing or even journey into the Great Bear Rainforest for an abundance of wildlife adventures, being sure to enjoy a few days in the lively waterfront city of Vancouver.
The province of British Columbia generally enjoys a temperate climate, but where there are mountains, there is snow making for the most amazing skiing. BC offers not just outdoor adventure but a cosmopolitan culture, world class exhibitions, shopping and fabulous dining making it the perfect diverse destination.
Vancouver forms the gateway to the rugged beauty of BC and is the perfect place to begin your Canada adventures. Here you can find gourmet food markets and a distinct fusion of cultures, which makes for an enticing gastronomic scene. Beyond Vancouver, experience the breath taking mountain landscapes of The Rockies, rivers brimming with trout and salmon where you can enjoy world-class fishing, dense rainforests where you can observe a variety of bear species and abundant parks which scream out to the adventurous traveler, inviting hiking and biking.
For the best bear viewing, visit during the Fall salmon run when bears gather around streams and waterfalls to hunt for their prey, a sight to behold and one of the most memorable experiences of any Canada itinerary.
