Vancouver and Victoria by Float Plane

7 nights from €2,329 per person Including Flights


This itinerary is a real treat – staying in two of Canada’s loveliest hotels and flying between the two by float plane. Take time to explore the gorgeous city of Vancouver and its different neighbourhoods, where you will find an amazing array of restaurants, shops and galleries – a lovely place for a three day stay. WE thoroughly recommend a "Vancouver Photowalk" tour, which tours a variety of neighbourhoods on different days of the week. For example on a Thursday or Sunday you will be taken around the cobbled streets of Gastown and given tips on composition and lighting. Then you’ll board a float plane and take the 40 minute scenic flight over the Strait of Georgia to the harbour in Victoria – the capital of British Columbia. Here you can stroll the lovely harbour front and visit beautiful Butchart Gardens, or take to the water for a whale and wildlife watching cruise. (TM)

This suggested itinerary can be tailormade to suit you, perhaps add a cruise to Alaska or how about a Rocky Mountaineer train journey through the majestic Rockies and the National Parks of Jasper and Banff.
