Choose between one of our partner airlines for flights from the UK into Vancouver. British Airways and Air Canada fly direct, non-stop, whereas United and American Airlines fly indirect with one change of aircraft en route in each direction.
Once you have arrived into Vancouver, collect your rental vehicle and begin your journey to the Sheraton Wall Centre hotel located at the highest point in downtown Vancouver. This is a luxurious, modern hotel which rises high above its surroundings, offering spectacular views of the mountains and English Bay. Here, you will find yourself in an ideal location within easy reach of the boutiques of Robson Street and Yaletown, plus the nearby markets, theatres and galleries ï¿½ it's the perfect base for exploring the sights of Vancouver.
The Sheraton Wall Centre offers a wide range of facilities, including a heated indoor lap pool, an infrared sauna, a whirlpool and a fully equipped gym. There is also a fantastic restaurant and bar for your enjoyment; Cafe One serves up a divine selection of West Coast cuisine for both lunch and dinner, whilst in the chic setting of Bar One you can enjoy a well-deserved cocktail at the end of a long day sightseeing.
The guest rooms have all been furnished to a beautifully luxurious standard, with floor to ceiling windows offering breath-taking panoramic views of the city and the bay. All rooms are fully air-conditioned and come with Cable TV, in room movies, telephone, radio, alarm clock, iron and ironing board, and in-room safe.
Whilst here in Vancouver, enjoy a day exploring the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park allowing you to appreciate nature from three varying perspectives. The Capilano Suspension Bridge; navigate your way along the 450 foot long and 230 foot high bridge as it sways back and forth in the wind. The new Cliffwalk is not for the faint hearted! With 16 anchor points including 2 glass platforms and a mix of stairs and bridges all supported by the cliff, make your way along the path of the Capilano River. The Treetops Adventure tackles the seven suspension bridges attached to the trees as you travel through the rainforest, 100 feet above the ground.
Begin the day by travelling to Tsawwassen to catch the ferry across to Swartz Bay, then on to the Fairmont Empress in Victoria where you will be staying for the next 5 nights. This is an elegant hotel with a colonial charm, offering a prime location on the Inner Harbour of Victoria, within easy reach of the restaurants, shops and bars.
Facilities include an indoor heated swimming pool, a wading pool for the children, a whirlpool, a spa and a fully equipped gym. There are also three restaurants to choose from; The Empress Room with an exquisite menu containing the finest local ingredients, The Bengal Lounge serving up the very best in authentic curry dishes and the Afternoon Tea offering a mix of pastries and tea sweets.
The guestrooms here are all air-conditioned and feature Cable TV, tea and coffee making facilities, an alarm clock, a radio and a hairdryer.
A holiday to Victoria would not be complete without an exhilarating whale watching excursion. Climb on board a Zodiac to begin your wildlife cruise; travel 100 kilometres as you zoom in and out of the Inner Harbour of Victoria before continuing past the historic coastline and out into the Pacific Waters. Keep a look out for the many species that swim these waters ï¿½ including killer whales, minke whales, grey whales and even the odd humpback whale; these may also be accompanied by a variety of smaller marine sea birds and mammals.
End your twin-centre holiday by catching the ferry back across to the mainland and head towards Vancouver Airport. Return your vehicle before catching your flight home to the UK.
