How to enjoy Vancouver

With snow capped mountains and a seafront with sandy coves and rolling waves, and plenty of opportunity to play in both, it’s no surprise that Vancouver regularly tops lists of best city in the world to live

  • Half as big again as Vail, the largest resort in the US, Whistler-Blackcomb has more 8,000 acres of the powdery white stuff, plus a peak-2-peak gondola
  • Test your nerve on the Capilano Suspension Bridge. The 150 year old swaying walkway is suspended 230 feet above the white water of the Capilano River
  • For a day or night view of Vancouver and the North Shore, let the glass elevator whisk you up the 50-storeys of the Vancouver Lookout Tower  

Whatever you want, it appears Vancouver can offer it. Vibrant nightlife, excellent restaurants and exquisite shopping? Head downtown where you’ll find upscale brands and Michelin stars housed within towers of glass. Savor 20 appellations of local oysters and fabulous dim sum in one of the largest Chinatowns in North America, (just one of the many cuisines you’ll find in this multicultural melting pot).

More of an outdoor type? How about a spot of heli-skiing. snowboarding, hiking, mountain biking, sea kayaking, paddle boarding, and white water rafting? Or shift gear and go whale watching or otter spotting. The rainforest wilds of Stanley Park touches the western edge of the city. The ski resort of Grouse Mountains is just 15 minutes out of town and the summer and winter playground of the Olympic resort Whistler is within a two-hour drive.
