High mountains, warm weather
Big adventures are to be had outside the city. Visit Victoria, the charming capital city of British Columbia, and experience Canada’s wide expanses on the ferry-crossing from Vancouver. Victoria has interesting cultural attractions and is the perfect starting point to explore nature. Whale watching tours are very popular and offer a chance to see orca, humpback and other whales. The Pacific Rim National Park Reserve is the place to truly experience the island. Or why not rent a car and take off to wherever you feel inspired to go! ;;;
The enormous ski resort of Whistler, which includes three glaciers, can be reached from Vancouver by car within two hours. With the Coast Mountains serving as a barrier to cold fronts, Vancouver has one of the mildest climates of all major cities in Canada. It is perfect for camping – followed by travelling across the rest of Canada in a campervan.
