Western Canada Sample Itinerary
Arrive Vancouver. Vancouver is Canada’s showpiece city on the Pacific. Regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Vancouver offers something for everyone – it is an incredible foodie destination, has a huge craft beer scene, and for outdoors lovers has hiking along spectacular forest, mountain and lakeside trails, biking, beaches and of course winter sports.
Exploring Vancouver – today you will hike or bike through Stanley Park, ascend Grouse Mountain, and this evening enjoy a spectacular Asian food experience – choose from Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese or Korean cuisine.
Take a float plane to Victoria, the very pretty capital of British Columbia, located on beautiful Vancouver Island. Victoria seems to many like a last bastion of Britain on the Pacific, and you will enjoy a tour of this lovely small city, including a visit to the spectacular Butchart Gardens and a whale watching cruise.
Travel to Tofino, a small surfer friendly town on the far edge of Vancouver Island. Fringed by long beaches, Tofino is perfect for surfers and those looking for relaxation alike.
Depart Tofino for a 5* tented glamping resort (summer only), located off the grid and accessible only by float plane or small boat. This is truly an escape from civilization, with luxury tent accommodation, fabulous world class food, and daily excursions along the water, in the forest or up into the mountains, even by helicopter!

Western Canada Trip Tips & FAQ's
What time of year is best for family travel to Western Canada?
Summer (June- September) is best, when the weather is warm and the days are long. It is possible to visit all year round, but outside of summer the weather tends to be rainy, though seldom seriously cold. For winter sports, one must come in winter of course, and snow is usually best from January – late March.
What are accommodations like in Western Canada?
Excellent. All major hotel chains are to be found, and accommodations range across all price levels.
Is Western Canada expensive?
During high season (summer) accommodation and services are expensive, but bear in mind that the Canadian dollar is often quite weak compared with other major currencies, meaning that Canada can offer some excellent value to those coming from the USA, UK and Europe for example. Winter is high season at ski resorts such as Whistler.
