Vancouver is located in southwestern British Columbia on the west coast of Canada and about 45 kilometers northwest of the U.S. border. The city offers a balanced mixture of modern urban development and breathtaking nature.
Right outside the city gates begins the wild beauty of Canada, which attracts especially nature lovers and outdoor adventurers to Vancouver! Vancouver itself convinces with a multifaceted and diverse cultural offer.
Mountains, forest, city and sea - Vancouver has something for every type of traveler! The green, clean city is worth a trip at any time of the year and can also be explored ideally on foot or by bike.
In terms of construction, Vancouver is a very young city. Therefore, modern buildings dominate the cityscape - especially impressive is the main building of the Vancouver Public Library, reminiscent of the Colosseum, or the tent-like structure Canada Place.
In the center of Vancouver, you will also find numerous top-equipped and impressive hotels, which will round off your stay in the Canadian metropolis to a dreamlike experience!
Vancouver's location alone makes the city an imposing work of art. On Canada's west coast, Vancouver nestles between the rugged mountains of the Coast Mountains and the Pacific east coast. The Canadian metropolis in the west of the country is an ideal destination for both nature and city travelers!
Countless nature moments promise day trips by boat. From the water, you also have a fantastic view of the impressive Vancouver skyline. You can also go whale watching by boat - on a tour you can get very close to orcas, for example!
