Described as “Manhattan with mountains” by the New York Times, Vancouver is a city that is easy to fall in love with and hard to leave. Located where the mountains meet the Salish Sea, Vancouver is an eclectic blend of cultures, urban areas, sparkling ocean harbors and lush green spaces. Explore historic neighborhoods like Gastown and Granville, enjoy downtown’s nightlife or stroll through Stanley Park.

Vancouver Island

Condé Nast Traveler magazine’s 2009 Readers’ Choice Awards ranked Vancouver Island second in the “Top Islands of North America” category. An incredibly diverse ecosystem consisting of rainforests, marshes, meadows, beaches, mountains, oceans, rivers and lakes that create habitats for multitudes of wildlife species. In fact, the region is one of the world’s premier destinations for wildlife encounters, including birds, elk, bear and whales. Much of the island is protected as it contains pockets of old-growth fir and cedar forests, as well as, naturally occurring groves of Garry oak. The beauty and tranquility of this island also boasts an array of cafes, art galleries, studios and shops selling the unique and local.

Located on the West coast of Vancouver Island, Tofino is a nature lovers destination year round.  While the population swells in summer with travelers, fisherman, surfers, campers and whale watchers, it is also a spectacular site in March when thousands of grey whales migrate through and in Winter when storm watching on the water is an activity in itself for those who enjoy the comfort of a cozy lodge.  Rich with native history and current day festivals celebrating everything from wine and oysters, to whales and art, the culture is also a big part of every visitor’s experience.
