Things to do in British Columbia


This is a city of possibilities where you can follow a day of golf or kayaking with a meal at one of North America's hottest restaurants and an evening at the theater. Laid back and energetic; stylish and outdoorsy; cosmopolitan and welcoming, Vancouver has something to offer everyone.



Top Highlights

  • Pedal or walk around the Stanley Park seawall and gaze upon the city's skyscrapers and the sailboats that dot the harbour.
  • Take the aerial tram up Grouse Mountain for a panoramic view of the city, sea and surrounding mountain peaks.
  • Spend an enjoyable day in Granville Island, most famous for its large and bustling Public Market.
  • Kayak in False Creek, a protected inlet that extends from English Bay, dividing downtown Vancouver from the rest of the city to the south, and get a new perspective on the city's blend of urban and natural beauty.


While the mountains are alive with skiers and snowboarders in winter, summer is the time to explore nature on foot, bike, kayak, via zipline or the famous PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola. Just two hours from Vancouver, Whistler has all the creature comforts and exciting nightlife of an international year-round resort.
