Vancouver Vacations: Mountains Meets Sea
Vancouver is nestled between the ocean and the North Shore Mountains. Go whale watching, hike a mountain, ski, or discover the city’s multicultural culinary scene. Bike at Stanley Park, passing totem poles, or tee-off at the park’s golf course. For an adrenaline rush, experience the Sky to Sea Gondola over Howe Sound or trek across the Capilano Suspension Bridge. Visit Kitsilano Beach to catch some rays with the locals. Whether you’re looking to ski or want to head to sea on a cruise, a Vancouver vacation package with Liberty Travel connects you with local experts and insider experiences.
