British Columbia

From picturesque beaches, to alpine skiing resorts, to a world-class cosmopolitan city, this Canadian province offers a diverse range of activities to enjoy.

British Columbia features an appealing blend of natural wonders and modern cultural attractions. Visit museums in Vancouver, relax on the shores of Tofino or take the ski lift up to Whistler’s slopes for stunning summit views and exciting downhill terrain.

Explore the busy streets of Vancouver, British Columbia’s main metropolitan hub, which promises both outdoor adventure and urban amenities. Cycle through Stanley Park to admire sea and rainforest views as well as First Nations’ art including totem poles. Take in a full panoramic view of the city from the Vancouver Lookout.

Vancouver’s thriving cultural scene is also worth exploring, with enriching museums such as the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre, Museum of Vancouver or Museum of Anthropology waiting to be discovered.

Escape from the city life at Tofino, a resort town on Clayoquot Sound. Surf the waves, relax on the beach and hike through beautiful scenery. Continue your nature appreciation in Okanagan Valley, a fertile area covered with vineyards and orchards. Other highlights include the Okanagan Lavender Farm, where lavender fields erupt in violet bloom during summer.

The alpine village of Whistler is a world-famous ski resort. Take a ride on the Peak 2 Peak Gondola or race down the slopes of the Blackcomb Peak. In the summer, hike through the mountains, visit the Audain Art Museum and shop for fresh produce and local trinkets at the Whistler Farmers’ Market.

Take a ferry to the enchanting Vancouver Island, a patchwork of alpine meadows, caves and sandy beaches. See orcas off the coast and spot grizzly bears in the Great Bear Rainforest.

Five international airports serve British Columbia, the most popular being Vancouver International Airport. Most towns have comprehensive bus and rail systems, though driving is the easiest way to travel around the province. Admire the abundant wildlife from a distance and remember that feeding wildlife is strictly prohibited.

British Columbia is a charming province blessed with majestic mountains, verdant valleys and spectacular coastline. Experience wild Canadian landscapes and learn about the area’s heritage in its towns and cities.
