Vancouver: Your Gateway
Nestled between a rainforest, mountains and the Pacific Ocean on Canada's west coast, Vancouver is an unexpected jewel. Sophisticated, vibrant, and breathtaking, Vancouver is consistently ranked as one of the world's most liveable cities.
Friendly with a laid-back vibe, Vancouver is home to a seemingly endless playground with activities and adventure for everyone. Visitors experience a modern, cosmopolitan city that blends culture and landscape.
Inclusive, energetic, and genuine, Vancouver is your gateway to nature, adventure, culture and leisure.
When's the best time to come?
Whenever you're here. Green year-round with the mildest climate in Canada, Vancouver has activities for every season. You'll rarely hear the term 'weather permitting' here.
As an all season destination, anytime you're here truly is the best time. Here are just some seasonal highlights:
Summer is best enjoyed in the great outdoors. Hit the beach for some rest and relaxation, or explore the city on one of the endless trails that wrap the city.
Fall kicks-off our vibrant entertainment season. Broadway-style musicals, theatre, opera, ballet, concerts, and the symphony, all served up with a unique west coast flavour.
Winter is an outdoor enthusiasts dream! With three powdery local mountains and some of North America's most epic alpine terrain just north of the city, snow lovers can rejoice on slopes that range from beginner to expert.
Spring is cherry blossom season. The weather's gorgeous, nature is lush, and flowers are blooming everywhere you look. Spring's the season when the ambitious can golf and ski in the very same day.
