Flying to British Columbia

  • British Columbia holidays suit all kinds of travellers

    Every year over two million visitors arrive in Whistler for ski holidays. Its hills were made world-famous during the 2010 Olympics. In summer, the area turns into a green playground complete with hiking, biking, white-water rafting and more. And any time of year, the town itself is worth a walk-through. It’s won numerous design awards, and it won’t be hard to see why.

Discover British Columbia

  
  • Wine tasting in British Columbia

    Kelowna, in the Okanagan Valley, is a popular spot for wine tours, as it features some of the best wineries and vineyards in Canada. Oenophiles shouldn't leave without sampling Canadian ice wine—it rivals anything one would find in the Rhineland. Kelowna is a four-hour drive from Vancouver, or a quick 45-minute flight.

    A holiday in British Columbia can be different for everyone. Reserve a flight to Vancouver and get your Pacific coast adventure started.

  • City Life on the West Coast

    Ninety minutes south of Whistler is Vancouver, where flights to British Columbia arrive. Visitors looking for a more urban-centric holiday love it here: the downtown is packed with great restaurants, bars and theatres. British Columbia’s smaller cities have much to offer as well. Tofino, on Vancouver Island, is a popular spot for surf holidays and soaking in Hot Springs Cove, while Victoria, British Columbia’s capital, also on Vancouver Island is among the most picturesque cities in Canada, highlighted by Craigdarroch Castle’s stained-glass windows. Travellers can fly to Vancouver Island or take a ferry across, and shouldn’t leave without a visit to Royal BC Museum, featuring one of the most brilliant collections of Native Canadian Haida totem poles, an art form native to British Columbia. For a more authentic Haida experience, cultural buffs can make their way to Haida Gawii on the Queen Charlotte Islands, off the northwest coast of the province.
