Playground for active nature lovers
Vancouver’s typical high-rise skyline is clearly visible from Granville Island. But nature is key in this metropolitan city. Visit Cypress Mountain or Grouse Mountain for a challenging hike in summer or skiing in winter. Watersports are also extremely popular here, as is whale watching from April to October. Not only is Vancouver the ideal destination for a city trip, it is also the starting point for a touring holiday in Canada. Book your flight to Vancouver now!
Full of cultural highlights
Vancouver is about more than nature, it’s a great cultural destination. The Vancouver Art Gallery is one of Canada’s foremost museums on painting, sculpture and photography. The Museum of Anthropology is an educational highlight. It holds many historical artefacts of the Native Americans, the original inhabitants of British Columbia. And explore the new cultural influences, for example the oldest Chinese neighbourhood in Canada. We especially recommend the evening market and Chinese garden, finished off with a delicious meal.
