Starting in Vancouver, you’ll have a full day to explore this vibrant city – rent bikes and cycle around Stanley Park’s seawall; take a water taxi across to Granville Island and indulge in some delicious local produce, then grab dinner in historic Gastown. The drive to Whistler offers a first proper taste of British Columbia’s incredible scenery, travelling north for 2 hours on the Sea to Sky Highway with mountains on your right and Howe Sound on your left. Again, you’ll have a full day to explore – get your hiking boots on and head out into the pristine alpine scenery!


Farewell Harbour Lodge

Now it’s time for wildlife fans to get excited!  After taking the ferry crossing onto Vancouver Island, you’ll have a night in Campbell River, known for its fishing and wildlife viewing opportunities, before continuing north for a three-night stay at the stunning Farewell Harbour Lodge. This wilderness lodge is located on the border of the Broughton Archipelago Marine Provincial Park; a protected wildlife area. Farewell Harbour is family owned and operated. You will enjoy exclusive opportunities with first-class naturalist guides to view grizzly bears, whales, dolphins, eagles and much more.  With only 12 cabins, you’ll feel like the only person in the world in this pristine wilderness.
