Day 1
Fly to Vancouver today. After you've checked in to your hotel stretch your legs along the scenic waterfront or explore one of the interesting neighbourhoods such as Gastown or Chinatown.
Day 2
Spend you first day exploring this vibrant city. Visit the Lookout for fantastic views then take a ride on ‘Fly Over Vancouver’ for a brilliant overview of the country. If you have time you could also head over to Granville Island Market to browse the array of food stalls on offer there.
Day 3
Hire bikes today and spend some time exploring Stanley Park. Here you will find traditional totems, an excellent aquarium and a lovely beach at English Bay. Also keep an eye out for racoons foraging along the shoreline!
Day 4
Visit the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park today and spend some time exploring the walkways and forest here. You can join a guided nature walk and also learn about the early history of the area. Complimentary transfers are available from the downtown area.
Day 5
Collect your hire car and take the ferry over to Vancouver Island today, keeping an eye out for wildlife as you cross the straits. Then enjoy a scenic drive as you make your way across the island to the laid-back town of Ucluelet, at one end of Pacific Rim National Park on the west coast.
Day 6
You have a fantastic day of wildlife viewing today. Firstly take a thrilling zodiac ride to look for Orca that feed in the nearby waters. You’ll also see seabirds and, if you’re lucky, other marine mammals. Return for lunch, then head out amongst rainforest-clad Sounds to spot black bears happily foraging along the shoreline.
Day 7
You join a guided kayaking tour today. Paddle through the sheltered water of Clayoquot Sound and stop on Meares Island for a short rainforest walk. With a local guide you’re sure to learn lots about the local flora, fauna and history.
Day 8
A day to relax around Tofino/Ucluelet. There are several stunning beaches where you can enjoy a leisurely stroll and some beachcombing, or take a longer walk in the beautiful Pacific Rim National Park.
Day 9
Return to the east coast of the island and take the ferry back to the mainland, followed by a short drive to Whistler. On the way you could stop at the Sea to Sky Gondola for beautiful views of Howe Sound, and the Britannia Mine Museum, to learn about the once thriving copper mining industry of the region.
Day 10
This morning take a ride on the Peak to Peak Gondola for dizzying views of the surrounding landscape – this is the country’s highest gondola! Later on go ziplining over the trees and valleys; a brilliant experience for all the family.
Day 11
Join a thrilling whitewater rafting trip today, with options available to suit all abilities.
Day 12
Enjoy a day relaxing around Whistler. There are some scenic walking trails around the nearby lakes, you could spend a bit of time browsing the shops in Whistler Village, or simply watching the world go by with a coffee and/or ice cream. However, the concierge at the hotel will be more than happy to help if you squeeze in one more activity on your last day!
Day 13
Return to Vancouver Airport this afternoon and join your overnight flight home.

Canada is the ideal place to spend some quality time with family and/or friends. It is bursting with adventure and activities but it’s a huge country so rather then spending a lot of time on the road we suggest you focus on three superb locations – Vancouver, the west coast of Vancouver Island (Tofino/Ucluelet) and Whistler. Between them they offer a fantastic mix of city, coast and mountains, and an excellent selection of activities – cycling, kayaking, ziplining, whitewater rafting and wildlife watching to name but a few. However, these are also great spots for a bit of down time – a leisurely waterfront stroll, or a long, al fresco lunch watching the world go by – so even for the less adrenaline-driven members of the group there is plenty to enjoy. Additionally, the distances between them aren’t too great so you get to maximise your time in each destination, reconnect with each other and rediscover all the things you enjoy doing together.

4 nights Vancouver – 4 nights Tofino/Ucluelet – 4 nights Whistler

Approximate prices are based on school summer holidays. Easter is generally a bit early in the season with a lot of snow still around but we can quote for this time of year if it’s of interest.
