A seaplane flight over British Columbia’s fragmented coastline reveals shards of forested land scattered across the Pacific, the surrounding waters plied by orcas, humpbacks and dolphins. On land, old-growth rainforests provide habitat for black, grizzly and spirit bears, which you can see from dedicated bear-watching lodges. As you journey eastward, the gentle, vineyard-covered hills of the Okanagan Valley give way to mountains, and the Canadian Rockies loom in the distance. Our Canada specialists have visited each corner of this popular province and will use their first-hand experience to plan your vacation to British Columbia around your interests.

The provincial capital, Victoria, is known for its manicured public gardens and streets lined with British-colonial buildings, which you can see from a horse-drawn carriage. You can learn about First Nations culture on Haida Gwaii — a string of sparsely populated islands that are the ancestral home of the Haida people. Then there’s Vancouver, a cosmopolitan metropolis of skyscrapers, multicultural restaurants and designer shops where you’re still never far from green parks, sandy beaches and snowy peaks. Wherever you want to explore in British Columbia, our specialists can recommend things to see and do that will suit your tastes.
