Vancouver and the Wine Country
Nestled on the edge of the Pacific Coast, Vancouver is the perfect combination of big city lights and jaw-dropping natural scenery. There are countless things to do, discover and explore in the city, and you will be spoiled for choice from the moment you arrive. Combined with 3-days car hire, this is the perfect way to see the best of British Columbia. Here’s our suggested itinerary for a break to Vancouver and beyond, including the best of what the city has to offer.
On arrival into Vancouver Airport, transfer independently to your hotel. Later, venture out and discover the neighbourhood, taking the time to explore the side streets to find a local treasure for your first dinner in Vancouver.
Today we suggest you hit the streets and discover the sights of Vancouver. First head to lively Chinatown and enjoy a taste of tranquillity in Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden - make sure you try the Dim Sum! Later, get an adrenaline rush as you take the SeaBus to the iconic Capilano Suspension Bridge, which will offer you jaw-dropping views of your surroundings. On your way home, stop by quirky Gastown and try some craft beer and pub food.
Immerse yourself in Vancouver’s culture today as you visit the museums or art galleries. We suggest you see the city with a difference by travelling on Mobi, Vancouver's public bike system. If you think you'll explore all day, perhaps you should rent a bicycle instead. In the early evening, download a man and search for one of the famous food trucks in this culinarily-rich town, serving cuisine inspired by nations across the world.
Today you should pick your car rental and enjoy the scenic 242-mile drive to Kelowna, where you will stay overnight. Make sure you take plenty of stops to enjoy the incredible scenery, camera in hand. Later, enjoy dinner in a friendly restaurant in downtown Kelowna.
Today we suggest you sample the best of the local produce by touring some lush vineyards with Wicked Wine Tour. Once you are suitably tipsy, you will again enjoy an overnight stay in Kelowna.
Today your road trip journey will come to an end as you head back to Vancouver. Drop off your rental car and enjoy the afternoon at leisure. No visit to Vancouver would be complete without a trip to Stanley Park, a 120-acre natural oasis in the urban epicentre.
Today is yours to soak up any remaining sights at leisure before you head to the airport for your return flight to the UK.
