Vancouver Coast & Mountains
Welcome to Vancouver, Coast & Mountains. BC's southwestern tourism region takes in Greater Vancouver, the fertile Fraser Valley, the resort destination of Whistler, the shimmering Sunshine Coast and the mighty Fraser Canyon.
From the snow capped solitude of the mountain peaks to the cosmopolitan flair of Greater Vancouver, there's much to offer. All within a days drive of one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
Vancouver is world-renowned for its breathtaking natural setting and a cosmopolitan flair, complimented by beautiful parks and gardens, beaches, and a variety of cultural and recreational facilities. There's great shopping and much to see and do for every member of the family including world class dining and visitor attractions. Plus, Vancouver's prime location is perfect for those who enjoy the outdoors.
The mountain ski resort of Whistler is a short drive away. Winter in Whistler, with incredible downhill skiing at Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, is what has made the area world famous. In addition to the downhill ski facilities, winter visitors enjoy cross-country skiing, heli-skiing, ice-skating, snowmobiling, sleigh riding, dogsledding and a host of other winter recreational pursuits. The Vancouver - Whistler region was chosen to host the 2010 Winter Olympics.
But, Whistler has rapidly developed into a four season vacation destination with mountaintop sightseeing, world-class golf, mountain biking (Whistler is considered "one of the top bike towns in North America"), hiking, in-line skating, horseback riding, sightseeing, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, and even glacier skiing, but of the few of the opportunities the area provides in the summer months.
It's no wonder so many visitors are captivated by the lure of the west coast. Come once and you can hardly wait to return.
