British Columbia is one of the most beautiful provinces in Canada.
Be sure to tour Vancouver

to do and see.

British Columbia - Vancouver Island
Vancouver Island is the largest island off the west coast of North

Canada's west coast is a wonderful place to visit. Stay in Tofino or Ucluelet
(on Vancouver Island) and soak in the wild, open Pacific. Long beach and the Pacific Rim
Park are great for hikes, nature watching and surfing. World class restaurants, lodges and
spas make this a destination for visitors from around the world.

Dolphin & Whale Watching in Vancouver.
Your best chance to see the migration of more than 20,000 Gray whales
is between the months of February to April. And, don't forget the Gravol. The seas can be
quite rough that time of year.

If you would prefer not to spend money on taxi fare when you arrive at
the Ottawa International Airport in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, you can board the # 97 bus,
which will take you to the downtown core or as far west as Bayshore Shopping Centre, in
Ottawa's west end. From there you can connect to other buses, if required. Check OC Transpo for information on bus routes and

The Diversity of Canada
Most people don't realise how massive Canada truly is. And because of our huge geographical
and climatic differences we offer an equally wide range of activities and landscapes.
It might be cliché to say we offer everything to everyone, but Canada
truly caters to a variety of traveller
For outdoor enthusiasts, there's heli-skiing, mountain climbing, sea
kayaking, snowboarding, surfing, and so on.
For culture vultures, our cultural centres of Toronto, Vancouver,
Montreal, Halifax, Calgary (and others) offer a variety of theatre, museums, art galleries
And if relaxing is your cup of tea, head to the Maritime cottages or
the West Coast Islands, or any of the
hundreds of lake-front properties in-between; for a summer so idyllic, you'll think it's
the 1950s again.
