Western Canada

The Rocky Mountains and the Prairie come together in a spectacular display along the Pacific Coast in Western Canada. This is perhaps one of the most awe-inspiring natural landscapes in the world: iridescent blue glacial lakes, endless pine forest, rugged cliffs, magnificent fjords, and stunning beaches. Canada’s West Coast - British Columbia and Alberta - is the ultimate outdoor playground. You could whizz down Whistler’s postcard-perfect mountain slopes on bikes or on skis, hike in Banff’s incredible national parks in the summer, or watch grizzly bears forage for food in the forests.

The West Coast’s urban landscape is equally alluring. Vancouver’s eclectic neighbourhoods embody true diversity, and you’ll find buzzing Japanese-style izakayas as well as hip breweries within minutes of each other. Explore a vibrant arts scene in Edmonton and historic charm in Victoria. The indegenous history of the First Nations people is celebrated across Western Canada, and you can browse displays in galleries, museums, as well as outdoor parks and at many lively festivals. Canada is a vast, varied country. Let us show you its most wonderful parts.
