The gateway to skiing in British Columbia, Vancouver is a vibrant city on the water that is not to be missed on your trip to Canada. With several surrounding mountains within a two-hour drive, the charming city of Vancouver is the gateway to popular ski resorts including Whistler and Sun Peaks and a favourite hangout of ours on the way to or from the mountains.
Nestled between the ocean and the mountains, Vancouver is very much a hub for anyone wanting to explore the great Canadian outdoors and as such, Vancouverites seem to spend as much time outside, kayaking rivers and scaling mountains, as they do topping the charts for the happiest urban residents in the world.
There's also some superb cuisine. With a rise in organic farms and wineries, as well as locally caught game and seafood, Vancouver’s cuisine sets a precedent for sustainable dining. Fable, a restaurant that supports the farm-to-table movement, creates sharing plates with local ingredients. Head to The Belgard Kitchen for lunch before sampling the popular West Coast Pale Ale at Postmark Brewing. Alternatively, a selection of British Columbian wines at the Vancouver Urban Winery.
