Day 2 Vancouver City Tour & Capilano Suspension Bridge
Explore the beauty that the city of Vancouver has to offer. You will see the highlights of the city and its natural surroundings. With its coastal mountains to the north and the Pacific Ocean neighbouring the city, Vancouver has been recognized as one of the most liveable cities in the world. The city is a modern multi-ethnical city, with a population in the downtown core of about 650 thousand people making it into a vibrant city. During this tour we will have stops at Stanley Park, Queen Elizabeth Park and Granville Island giving you time to enjoy the beauty of each area. Our guides will also take you through Robson St., English Bay, Chinatown, Gastown, Canada Place, and more. Visit the oldest tourist attraction in Vancouver, the Capilano Suspension Bridge. There you can experience the beauty of the old forests that once occupied Vancouver. You will be able to cross the longest foot passenger suspension bridge in the world, visit the Tree Top Adventure, and experience the Cliffwalk. This Cliffwalk is the newest section of the park. It is a cantilevered walkway clinging from the granite cliffs that face above the Capilano Canyon. If you like adventure this is definitely for you!
Return to your hotel and afternoon is free at leisure.
Day 3 Vancouver – Whistler – Vancouver
Pick up at your hotel this morning and start our day by leaving the beautiful city of Vancouver and heading up north to the majestic mountains surrounding Whistler Village. As we leave the city we will travel through the Lions Gate Bridge, the gateway to the port of Vancouver. Going towards the north, we will reach the beautiful “Sea to Sky Highway” where you will be able to see the Howe Sound, North America’s southernmost fjord on the left and sky high mountains to the right. Enjoy breathtaking views over snow-capped peaks and shimmering lakes.
Continuing our journey we will arrive to Shannon Falls, the third tallest waterfalls in the province. You will have time to walk to the base of the falls, take pictures, and feel the mist of the spectacular Shannon Falls as you walk to the viewing deck. After spending some time there we will continue north where the scenery changes to high mountains and thick forests. After passing by Squamish, it will only take us about 15 minutes to arrive at the beautiful Whistler Village. Here you will have free time to explore the village, eat something, go shopping and if you wish to do the “Peak 2 Peak Gondola” (ticket not included) you may do so if the weather permits. This is the longest and highest lift in the world, offering an unparalleled perspective from British Columbia’s rooftop.
After a day of adventure we will head back to Vancouver, dropping you off at your hotel around 5:30 to 6:00 pm.
Day 4 Vancouver – Victoria – Vancouver
This is a once in a lifetime experience, from the ocean, to the most beautiful gardens into the historical city of Victoria, located on Vancouver Island. We will start our trip by heading south out of the city. You will start to see one of the many agricultural lands that surround Metro Vancouver, which will lead us to the BC Ferry Terminal, Tsawwassen. There we will be boarding the BC Ferry that will take us to Vancouver Island. The Ferry ride will take 1 hour and 35 minutes to cross over. During this time you will have time to see and take pictures of the beautiful sights and if lucky you might be able to see some orcas, eagles, dolphins and seals! Once we have arrived there we will make our way to the beautiful Butchart Gardens. Here you will see the beauty of the 55 acre gardens, with a mixture of the Sunken Gardens, to the Rose Garden to the Japanese Garden. It is truly a paradise. After spending some time there we will head to the capital of the Province, Victoria. This small town is home to beautiful buildings, museums, good restaurants, a harbour, and shops. Here you will have free time to do as you please. At the time that will be given by your guide we will head back to board the BC Ferry at Swartz Bay, back to Vancouver. It will be a memorable day!
