The British Columbia region
British Columbia is Canada's Westernmost Province, a stunning array of mountains, lakes, rivers, temperate rainforest and even a desert region all meeting the powerful Pacific Ocean with an amazing coastline of fjords (called 'sounds' in Canada) and sandy beaches.
With the vast majority of British Columbia's 4.5 million population living in and around Vancouver and Victoria the rest of the Province is unspoilt wilderness with opportunities for wildlife sightings (deer, moose, caribou, black & grizzly bears, cougars) and gorgeous mountain sightseeing.
Search online for British Columbia, we think you'll like what you find ! If you have any questions or want suggestions on good itineries for a BC trip please feel free to get in touch.
Our suite is located in North Vancouver, an affluent suburb of Vancouver, situated on the lush North Shore mountainside, just a 20 minute drive from Downtown but offering the sense of being 'away from it all'.
North Vancouver offers all day-to-day amenities including malls, supermarkets etc and is home to a number of tourist attractions including Grouse Mountain (skyride up, hiking, great views) and Capilano Suspension Bridge. A car is not necessary to get to these attractions or into Downtown Vancouver. However, if you wish to go out of the city to parks beyond you will need a hire car as the transit system only exists within Metro Vancouver.
Vancouver city offers the historic Gastown district, renovated warehouse district of Yaletown, beautiful English Bay restaurant patios or the market at Granville Island.
There is so much to do in and around this city, go hiking, kayaking, whale watching, take a cruise into a fjord, skiing, sit on a beach. It's all here !
