For centuries, Canada has been the subject of many a dispute by foreign peoples eager to take possession of it. A visit here will easily show you why. After all, beautifully diverse Canada has so many choices to offer the traveller lucky enough to visit it. Whether you live for adventure in the rugged and unspoiled outdoors, seek cultural enrichment in a world-class museum, or simply want to indulge in exceptional cuisine - Canada has it all. And in a country so vast it has six time zones and borders three oceans, you’ll certainly never run out of options.

Vancouver, British Columbia

The world’s most liveable city according to The Economist, Vancouver is a picturesque city surrounded by the waters of the Pacific Ocean and the snowcapped peaks of the Coast Mountain range. It also has many unique neighbourhoods to explore including Gastown, Yaletown, Chinatown and the West End.


  • Stanley Park, a lush rainforest in the heart of the city. Here, you’ll also find the Vancouver Aquarium, Canada's largest aquarium, which has more than 70,000 animals. There, you can walk, bike or jog part of the seawall, a 10.5 km (6 mile) stone wall following the shoreline that surrounds the park.
  • Vancouver Lookout for a 360° view of the city.
  • Grouse Moutain, the Peak of Vancouver, just 15 minutes from downtown and 1120m above the city.
  • A walk across Capilano Suspension Bridge - 137m long and 70m above the Capilano River.

Victoria, British Columbia

Named the "fittest city" in Canada, Victoria is probably best known for its mild climate and active outdoor lifestyle. As the capital of British Columbia, the city is very tourist-friendly, with many attractions, including world-famous gardens, 150 years of British history, gourmet dining and fantastic shopping.


  • The world-famous Butchart Gardens, with 55 acres of spectacular floral displays, or the lush and exotic Butterfly Gardens to see why Victoria is "The City of Gardens".
  • The awe-inspiring Craigdarroch Castle, a towering Victorian mansion complete with a tower, turrets and five storeys of stained glass.
  • The local pubs and microbreweries along the Victoria Ale Trail or one of the area’s award-winning vineyards for some wine tasting.
