Concentrating on a small corner of Canada we have created a family adventure holiday, which gives you the true Canadian experience without having to drive for thousands of miles with the kids! Starting in Vancouver we have BBQ's on the beach, look for otters and seals, kayaking, canoeing, a visit to the Capilano suspension bridge and climb aboard the mine train and travel through the tunnels - and this is just in the first few days! We transfer to Squamish and enjoy a couple of days here with some short walks and day in Whistler to zoom up the gondola or paddle on the lake. We also walk ‘The Chief' in Squamish before taking the ferry to beautiful Vancouver Island. Here we see 800yr old Douglas Firs, check out some caves and enjoy scenic walks. Our highlight is the bear watching tour from the safety of a boat whilst darting in and out of the inlets. Truly amazing. Further optional activities such as whale watching, surfing, fishing and biking are also available in the Pacific Rim National Park. In Victoria we can visit the first Nations museum and see their colourful art before we take the ferry back to Vancouver. This holiday gives you a great sense of adventure, the wildlife, wilderness and of what Canada is about. There is no need for endless driving, just a great itinerary and the beauty of the country will charm you and your family. It's totally awesome!
Is this holiday for you?
Suitable for children from 6 yrs old
This is a jam packed holiday full of activities and adventure, but easily accessible for families who are active on a weekly basis at home and there is a focus on having fun. The maximum walk is approx 4hrs at an easy, gentle pace. Many of the shorter walks are ‘interpretive', so follow a planned route with informative boards of information. You have to have a sense of adventure to enjoy the holiday and be willing to help the guide out with camp chores such as setting up tents and helping prepare the meals, fetch water, assist with the dishes etc. Many activities and tours are including in the holiday price, but there are options on a few days to choose additional. If you wish to take part in any of the water based activities you must be able to swim. All activities are suitable for beginners and children.
