Day Trips from Vancouver

Zip along the Sea to Sky Highway—so cinematic, you'll feel like you're cruising through a travel documentary. Pull over in Squamish, often dubbed the "outdoor adventure capital of Canada," where mountains, glaciers, and forests offer a natural playground that's second to none. Then, set your sights on Whistler, home to Whistler Blackcomb, one of the largest ski resorts in North America and a key venue for the 2010 Winter Olympics. But Whistler isn't just for ski bunnies and snowboard shredders; this compact, chalet-style pedestrian village at the base of Whistler and Blackcomb mountains caters to all.

But hold onto your hats, there’s another whole island to discover! Jet-set over to Vancouver Island via ferry, helicopter, or dare we say, floatplane! Immerse yourself in Victoria's old-world allure or shred some waves in Tofino, Canada’s surfing mecca.

Feel like staying a bit closer? Navigate east along the Trans-Canada Highway and plunge into the Fraser Valley, an agri-adventure playground teeming with fisherman's paradises, rejuvenating hot springs, and river-rafting delights. Whether it's the tranquility of Chilliwack and Harrison Hot Springs or the farm-to-table freshness of Agassiz and Abbotsford, each pocket of the valley is a snapshot of British Columbia's diverse soul. Fancy a little vino? The Okanagan Valley beckons with lakeside wineries that could give even Napa Valley a run for its money. And don't forget to keep your eye our for Ogopogo, Canada's very own mythic sea monster! Some say the more wine you sip, the likelier you are to spot it.

And let’s talk about BC's culinary backbone: the Fraser Valley, home to the epic Fraser River. Fishermen, get ready for a Pacific salmon, sturgeon, and trout bonanza! Adrenaline seekers, the river doesn't disappoint with its pulse-pounding rafting and boating opportunities. And when you're ready to dial it down, let's wash down the day's adventures at one of the many local breweries and distilleries dotted among the epic farmlands. Discover all this while deepening your connection to the land's enduring spirit.

And let's not forget, this is the Pacific Northwest—land of legends and lore. Keep your eyes peeled as you wander. Harrison Lake and Harrison Mills claim to be home to the elusive Sasquatch, a mythical apelike creature that has captivated imaginations worldwide. So whether you're hiking, fishing, or simply enjoying the great outdoors, remember: you're not just a visitor, you're a participant in a grand Pacific Northwest saga.
