Leave the mountains of Anchorage for a memorable family vacation among the snowcapped peaks of Vancouver, British Columbia. It’s easy to find flights from Anchorage to Vancouver on Orbitz.com, as well as great deals on rental cars and hotel rooms.
Flights from Anchorage leave from Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport, located approximately four miles southwest of downtown. If you drive to the airport, parking is available in the long-term lot near the South Terminal at discounted rates or adjacent to the North Terminal for slightly higher fees. If you’d rather have someone else drive, both Yellow and Checker Cabs provide door-to-door service to the airport. The Municipality of Anchorage People Mover Bus also makes frequent trips from downtown to the airport for your convenience. If you’re hungry, hurry into McDonald’s or Quizno’s for a quick bite on the way to the gate.
Flights into Vancouver land at Vancouver International Airport on Sea Island. Once you arrive, taxis will be available directly outside the terminal to deliver you to your hotel. Aerocar Limousine service can also be scheduled by calling 888-821-0021. If you need to pick up a rental car, several rental agencies are located in the terminal to offer hassle-free on-site service. Check with your hotel for shuttle service, or hop on the Canada Line light rail system, which has an easy-access station located between the domestic and international terminals. Evenings in Vancouver are generally chilly, with temperatures averaging between 32°F and 55°F, so you’ll want to pack a jacket no matter what time of year you’re visiting. If you’re traveling in the winter, be sure to bring heavy coats and gloves, as averages often hover at 32°F. Summer days are mild and pleasant, with highs in the low 70s. Outdoor activities are so abundant in Vancouver that you’ll wish you had an entire month to experience them all. Make sure to visit Stanley Park, which offers over a thousand acres of beautiful land where you can walk, jog, hike, bike, or rollerblade. Take a scenic drive along the Sea to Sky Highway, with the mountains rising on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other. Finish off the day with a relaxing dinner at Bishop’s, where all the recipes are made with locally grown produce.
