Where nature is nurtured

Don’t challenge British Columbia to a nature contest. The westernmost province has an unfair advantage: this is where the Pacific Ocean is met by bustling city and towering forest; where soaring snow-capped mountains give way to picturesque valleys, and where lively urban life blends in beautifully with the nature that surrounds it. 

If you’re in search of authentic experiences on your trip to the West Coast, you’ll find a plethora of ways to be immersed in the cultures of those who have been there since time immemorial. British Columbia is home to the most diversity of Indigenous cultures — with over 200 First Nations and 30 languages spoken. 

Whether you decide to be inspired at the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre in Whistler, or sip wine in the breathtaking Okanagan at Nk'Mip Cellars, the first Indigenous-owned and operated winery in North America — you’re sure to leave feeling rejuvenated. Prefer to go somewhere more off the grid? At Spirit Bear Lodge, nestled in the world’s largest temperate rainforest, the Kitasoo and Xai’xais Peoples offer wildlife tours to see one of the world’s most elusive animals, the white-coated Spirit Bear.

Vancouver

Where the skyline of glass towers reflects the beauty of the surrounding ocean and coastal mountains. Where you can swim at the beach and explore a mountain in the same day. Where the cuisine is world-class and the nightlife electrifying. Vancouver is definitely spectacular by nature.

Haida Gwaii: Islands at the Edge of the World  External Link Title

From USD $9,995 per person

9-10 days / 8-9 nights

Perched on the outer edge of the continental shelf 60 miles off the northwest coast of Canada lies a place called Haida Gwaii: "Islands of the People" in the language of the ancestral Haida whose presence here spans millennia. Wild and windswept, this archipelago of more than 200 islands is one of the richest biological and cultural sites in North America. Its geographic isolation has allowed numerous unique species to evolve, earning it the name "Canada's Galapagos." Encounter the wonder and mystique of Haida Gwaii from a deluxe sailboat as we explore ancient temperate rain forest, a vibrant intertidal zone teeming with colorful sea creatures, and a human heritage that dates back 13,000 years. Wreathed in mist, old-growth cedars, Sitka spruce and western hemlocks pierce the silver underbelly of the clouds. Old totem poles also rise skyward from abandoned Haida villages now sinking into the moss, while new ones emerge from the hands of modern-day carvers. Sandy beaches edge rockbound shorelines where sea lions haul out and whales spout offshore. On this rare voyage of discovery, encounter a place that will move your spirit—a place called Haida Gwaii.
