About Vancouver Coast & Mountains
Vancouver region offers a various range of world class cultural, recreational, natural and wildlife attractions year-round. Our attractive location between ocean and mountains enables an amazing range of visitor experience, and we invite you to meet ALL that Vancouver, Coast & Mountains has to offer.
From internationally celebrated entertainment and attractions in Greater Vancouver, cycling, hiking or boating on our famed Sunshine Coast, driving through Sea to Sky Country with its scenes of glacier carved peaks and waterfalls on your way to Whistler Resort or enjoying the rich history and thrilling adventure of Mighty Fraser Country.
Nature's skyscrapers lie just beyond Man's. Groomed parks give way to lush wilderness and city sidewalks become sandy beaches, it is your sign to share a barefoot stroll. Even in the heart of the city, nature is around the corner.
A 40-minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver takes you to a place where peace and quiet are there, unique fishing villages and local artist communities dot the Sunshine Coast. Dive, sail, or just discover places that are as exciting as their names. Halfmoon Bay. Chatterbox Falls. Smugglers Cove Marine Park.
30 minutes from Vancouver is the Sea to Sky Highway 99, one of the world's most charming drives. Take it from West Vancouver to Squamish, Canada's windsurfing capital. Or beyond to Whistler, it was voted the number one ski resort in North America.
Near Vancouver lie the lands carved by the Fraser River. From the vast delta with its beaches, mudflats, and wetlands to the canyons of the Coast Mountains. Take the Hell's Gate Airtram over the powerful Fraser River.
