The Stories of Canada – British Columbia Preview
British Columbia presents travelers with striking differences and extraordinary destinations. The bright lights of Vancouver beckon, and the the city’s diverse and laid-back atmosphere set the tone for your journey.
Expect the unexpected, as you leave Vancouver behind for the Okanagan Valley, where a warm Indigenous Welcome Ceremony awaits. Your time in the Okanagan is marked with visits to wineries, and meeting local Indigenous hosts who share their stories. You’ll pedal an e-bike against the backdrop of vineyards, kayak a placid lake, and enjoy an elegant lunch with wine pairings.
Unexpected moments continue in Desolation Sound, from the time you arrive at your wilderness resort, nestled in the Homfray Channel between two coastal mountain peaks. Spot seals, sea lions, and Orca whales on a boat tour. Look for bears in the Toba Inlet during grizzly-viewing season (August 25th-October 13th) and learn about the nearby First Nations Communities.
Finally, a private seaplane safari will transport you from the wilderness back to Vancouver. On the way, a visit to the Inlet’s remote Chatterbox Falls will remind you why the hardest places to reach are worth the journey, while lunch in Gibsons delivers freshly caught seafood in a small-town setting.
We love British Columbia because it surprises you. Whether it’s watching a whale breach right before your eyes, discovering coastal rainforest on a seaplane safari, or indulging in world-class wine and gourmet delicacies – no two moments, days, or destinations are alike in BC.
Stay tuned for January 2022 when you can experience the extraordinary British Columbia for yourself!
