British Columbia Family Vacation

A West Coast Family Vacation

British Columbia is Canada’s western most province, and also the most biologically, geographically, and climatically diverse. The province’s motto is “Splendor Sine Occasu,” which translates as splendor without diminishment. On this British Columbia family vacation you will be exploring a variety of landscapes, from grasslands and mountains, to ocean and big city. You’ll fly over several of Canada’s tallest mountain ranges, ride through cowboy country, fish salmon streams surrounded by coastal rainforest, and visit beautiful Vancouver, a sophisticated world-class city.

Trip Details



We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.


These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.



“I can’t say I really ‘work out,’ but I’m in good shape and am relatively active.”


“I enjoy a good walk or ride, and feel comfortable while on the move.”


“I get moving at least once a week, and don’t mind a little sweat.”


“I get moving a few times per week and enjoy some exertion.”


“I want to feel invigorated each day and going hard is how I like to do that.”

Autumn Colour Destinations

"One of Mother Nature's most spectacular displays is upon us. With the arrival of autumn the forests and woodlands of the Northern Hemisphere are gradually transforming into a striking natural show of russet, vermillion, gold, bronze and yellow. New England is justifiably popular for its arresting autumnal displays but there are off-the-beaten-track alternatives."
