Vancouver

According to one annual survey, Vancouver ranks third among the world’s top three “most livable cities,” following Melbourne and Vienna. Thanks to interesting topography (the seaside port boasts mountains and forested islands), a diverse population and film studios, Canada’s largest westernmost city has adventure, international cuisine and star appeal.

  • 3 Days: Essential Vancouver-LP

    3 Days: Essential Vancouver

    Vancouver is a walkable city with a busy downtown area and a giant park  to explore. With its diverse ethnic populations, it is also a top foodie city. This is just one example of the kind of itinerary Indagare’s expert team can design for you.

    • Day 1: Overview

      Start your trip by observing Vancouver from above. One of the most exciting ways to see the diverse landscapes of city, mountain and sea is by floatplane: a single-prop, six-seater plane that takes off and lands on water. Then, take a water taxi to the huge Granville Island Public Market: a crafts fair, mall and farmer’s market rolled into one. Stroll through the lively stalls before heading back to the city for dinner at a local foodie favorite.

    • Day 2: Outdoor Excursions

      Art and culture lovers should start their day at either the Vancouver Art Gallery or the Museum of Anthropology at UBC, which boasts an incredible collection of First Nations art. Then, head to Vancouver’s green jewel—Stanley Park—a 1,000-acre temperate rainforest jutting out into the ocean from the edge of the busy West End. A quieter option is to pack a picnic and spend the afternoon relaxing in VanDusen Botanical Gardens.

    • Day 3: Victoria Day Trip

      Make your way to Victoria, the picturesque capital of Vancouver Island, via a 90-minute ferry ride from Vancouver. Explore the quaint city with a stroll through the Butchart Gardens, a tour of the impressive Royal British Columbia Museum and high tea at the venerable Fairmont Empress Hotel.
