A cosmopolitan city offering, cultural attractions, art galleries, museums, theatres, excellent shopping, fine restaurants and a host of outdoor activities on its doorstep, it is easy to see why Vancouver is one of the world's most popular cities. For fans of the great outdoors you are just spoilt for choice with plenty of outdoor pursuits on offer nearby or just a short distance away, at Whistler for example where the 2010 winter Olympics where held, try your hand at skiing and snowboarding (season permitting). Alternatively, why not explore the spectacular coastline by taking one of the many excursions by floatplane or boat.
Take a cruise from Vancouver for some whale watching or visit the ice sheets and bergs off Alaska. A popular experience now is to spend a few nights in Vancouver pre or post Cruise from May to September as many of the top cruise liners offer sailings to/from Vancouver to Alaska.
Vancouver is also a great place to start or finish a trip through the incredible Rockies, Sunway can offer luxury train trips on the Rocky Mountaineer or do your own thing on a fly drive or join a group Escorted Tour holiday.
