Destinations

Grizzly bear treks, whale-watching trips and rodeo shows; British Columbia is wild at heart; discover its highlights with an independant itinerary

From the soaring peaks of the Rocky Mountains to the remote wilderness and the natural beauty of Vancouver Island, there is so much to see in British Columbia – affectionately referred to by its initials, BC – that the great outdoors is always calling. Our independent tours and self-drive itineraries are a fantastic way to experience the very best hotspots like Vancouver, Whistler and Sunpeaks. Through the exploration of these incredible islands, cities, and mountains you can go on a bear viewing boat excursion along the Campbell River, see the Calgary Stampede in early July, and take the Jasper-Prince Rupert train across British Columbia’s Cariboo Region. All of our British Columbia tours and itineraries can be tailored to suit the number of nights, choice of hotels, and excursions you might want to join.
