Ideal for active and adventurous vacationers, British Columbia holidays usually include a blend of wilderness experiences and tours of urban attractions. Most visitors come here to kayak, whale watch, ski, snowboard, golf, fish, surf, and hike through 4 national parks and 140 ecological reserves. For a comprehensive British Columbia tour, make sure your visit includes stops in Vancouver and Victoria, two big cities packed with modern attractions and perfectly positioned for exploring this part of North America.
