British Columbia is one of the most picturesque regions in an already camera-friendly nation. Your shutter-finger (not to mention the rest of your body) will get quite the workout on this 8-day family adventure into the forests and mountains of Canada’s Pacific Northwest. Beginning with a bike ride around Vancouver’s scenic Stanley Park, you’ll ferry over to Victoria and climb into sea kayaks in search of seals. Later, you’ll enjoy a scenic drive up to Tofino, home to rainforests, hot springs and boat tours. It all wraps up with two full days of active exploration in Whistler, where the whole family can bike and raft in natural splendour. West Coast? Think ‘Best Coast.’
Highlights: Spotting whales off the coast of Vancouver Island, Observing seals while sea kayaking, walking among giant Douglas firs, exploring the varied neighbourhoods of Vancouver
The Rockies are a great reason to explore the Canadian West, but why stop there? We asked that question, then answered it with this trip—a sprawling, nature-rich mini-epic that melds some of Canada’s best national parks with time off the mist-shrouded shores of Vancouver Island. Loaded with diverse experiences—whale-watching, glacier hikes, hot springs and much, much more—and bookend nights in Calgary and Vancouver, you’ll stuff a lifetime’s worth of adventure into the space of a mere two weeks.
Highlights: Watching surfers in Tofino, creating a postcard-perfect photo in Jasper, sipping lattes with the pretty people in Vancouver, feeling humble while gazing up at the mighty Rockies, getting a bird's-eye view of Banff from a gondola, sharing lunch with the goats at Coombs market.
