Vancouver Coast & Mountains
The Vancouver, Coast & Mountains region, sitting in the southwest corner of mainland British Columbia, is home to the province’s biggest city of Vancouver, as well as perhaps its best-known resort of Whistler. This region is also rich in scenery, offering some of BC’s best road trips. The Sea-to-Sky Highway, for example, winds past waterfalls, historic sites, and the adventure-sports town of Squamish on its way to Whistler. Don’t miss taking a glimpse of The Fraser River, which surges through a dramatic canyon before flowing past the wineries and organic farms of the Fraser Valley. The Sunshine Coast is a quick ferry journey from Horseshoe Bay, which sits just north of Vancouver. Although part of the mainland, this stretch of mountain-backed coastline is only accessible by sea or air, giving it the quiet pace of an island.
