Luxury Vancouver Holidays

Stopping off in Vancouver for night or two is an essential requirement for visiting Canada’s West Coast. Our North America specialists always recommend it to our clients, especially clients heading to the world-class slopes of nearby Whistler.

Vancouver is one of those cities often found at the summit of ‘most liveable places’ lists. It’s a green, clean and scenic city, and the perfect stepping stone to the Great Outdoors of British Columbia.

Less than a 30-minute drive from Downtown Vancouver, there are deeply-forested valleys and snowcapped mountains, while off the coast of Vancouver Island is a migratory route for humpback whales. Vancouver City itself has its own famous green spaces including Stanley Park and the North Shore, a hotbed of mountain biking, kayaking, forest hiking and more.

Our favourite side of Vancouver? The city is an epicurean delight, with a thriving restaurant, café and bar scene, taking full advantage of the West Coast cold water seafood available.

Our team have excellent relationships with the best luxury and boutique hotels in Vancouver, and we’ll give you expert local tips on what to do with your time there. And if you’re looking for something different, there’s a stunning 3-hour train journey that takes you all the way to Whistler.
