All of our tours end in Vancouver. Uniquely blessed with nature, culturally diverse Vancouver is Canada’s dynamic gateway to the Pacific Rim.
The Lower Mainland with a population of 2 million includes autonomous cities and municipalities just north of the US border. With the arrival of the trans-continental railway 1886 the town with its natural harbour started growing to become a major port and today is Canada’s third largest city.
Vancouver hosted the Olympic Winter Games in 2010/2011.
Today’s Vancouver offers a thriving cultural scene in concert halls and on stages, museums and art galleries. Multiple outdoor opportunities present themselves with Stanley Park being one of the most popular places that has residents walk, cycle or roller blade its seawall. Hikers and skiers like to play on local mountains. West Coast cuisine with a focus on seafood and B.C.’s growing wine industry, is served at numerous fine restaurants throughout the city.
Granville Island with craft shops, artist’s studios, theatres, restaurants and a thriving public market is known for its fresh seafood and other bounties. It can easily be reached by mini-ferries from downtown.
Our knowledgeable and enthusiastic local tour guide takes our guests on an extensive bicycle tour thus introducing them to some of the main attractions, such as Stanley Park, False Creek, Chinatown and Gastown. Many of them extend their stay in Vancouver, since there is so much else to discover and to do: the Vancouver Aquarium, Museum of Anthropology, the Vancouver Maritime Museum, ‘Science World’, Queen Elisabeth Park to name a few.
